Abstract

Hemangiopericytomas are soft tissue tumors composed of pericapillary pericytes. These tumors are rare in the lacrimal sac. To the author's knowledge, only four previous cases of these tumors occurring in the lacrimal sac have been reported. A primary hemangiopericytoma of the lacrimal sac in a 34-year-old female is reported. Total excision with the surrounding tissue appears to be the treatment of choice for this tumor.
