AbstractHemangiopericytoma (HPC) is a rare form of vascular tumour. It consists of extensive proliferation of pericapillary cells (pericytes). The most common locations are the head and neck, lower extremities and retroperitoneum. HPC can be benign or malignant. Malignant HPC can metastasize to other areas of the body, usually to the lungs. Up to 5-10% HPCs present in childhood and 5-40% occur in the 1st year of life. We report a fetal case of HPC presenting as an ultrasound finding of a forehead mass. CASE: The proband was a 23y P1 Caucasian woman and her husband was 22y and of same descent. The couple was healthy and non-consanguineous. Early fetal ultrasounds were
