Hemangiopericytoma is a rare, highly vascular tumor which has both malignant and benign varieties. We report a case of a 41-year-old man who underwent surgery in emergency because of cardiac tamponade. The histopathologic examination of the specimens revealed primary malignant cardiac hemangiopericytoma. The patient died 46 days from the beginning of symptoms and 13 days after surgery.
