Hemangiopericytoma are vascular lesions are more commonly reported in the soft tissues when compared to reports in the hard tissues. These are considered to originate from the pericytes in the blood capillaries and hence can occur anywhere in the human body. The incidence of this entity among the other vascular lesion is only 0.1%. The most common locations reported are the brain, lower extremities, pelvic area, head, and neck. Hemangiopericytoma is most commonly located in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses in the head and neck region. Hemangiopericytoma are painless masses and may not have any associated symptoms but may turn symptomatic when other adjacent structures are affected. Though rare, their prognosis is better. This is because of the tendency to be less aggressive and not metastasizing. Here we attempt to report this pathology at zygomatic bone which is the rarest site of the occurrence of the vascular lesions as seen in literature.
