Abstract

A 64-year-old female presented with hemangiopericytoma arising from a dural fascia graft placed after a previous operation for the total removal of a benign meningioma. The patient also had multiple pulmonary metastases identified as hemangiopericytoma. The tumor resected at the first operation was benign based on all grading systems for meningiomas. We considered that the tumor was a kind of scar tumor. The hemangiopericytoma probably developed from a scar tumor at the graft. We emphasize the importance of long-term follow-up for patients who have undergone surgery for benign tumors.
