Abstract

We report imaging and pathologic findings of myopericytoma of the face, in a 75-year-old woman, which was diagnosed by a sonographically guided core-needle biopsy (US-CNB). The mass was well-demarcated and intensely enhanced on a CT scan and was markedly hypervascular on a power Doppler ultrasonography. Histological findings of the specimens, obtained by US-CNB, were consistent with myopericytoma. While myopericytoma of the face appears markedly hypervascular on imaging, the histological diagnosis can be established safely with US-CNB, without significant bleeding, if sufficient manual compression is applied.
