Heman­gio­per­i­cy­toma (HP) is a ­rare ­tumoral neo­plasm of the ­soft tis­sues. ­Here, we ­report a ­case of HP ­that ­appeared in a ­young ­woman in a ­very ­uncommon loca­tion (per­i­anal). ­Initially it was con­sid­ered as a per­i­anal ­abscess: arter­i­og­raphy, CT-­scan and, even­tu­ally, his­to­log­ical ­studies, con­firmed the diag­nosis of HP. The ­tumoral ­mass was ­first embol­ized and there­after was ­resected ­through a ­double ­approach (abdom­inal and per­i­neal). One and a ­half ­years ­after sur­gery, the ­patient ­remains asymp­to­matic.
