Hemangiopericytoma is an uncom­mon mesen­chy­mal neo­plasm ­that rare­ly ­affects the spi­nal ­canal. We ­report a ­case of tho­rac­ic epi­du­ral heman­gio­per­i­cy­to­ma in a 39-­year-old man ­with symp­toms of spi­nal ­cord com­pres­sion stud­ied by mye­lo-com­put­ed tomog­ra­phy (CT) and mag­net­ic res­o­nance imag­ing (MRI). Total resec­tion was fol­lowed by com­plete recov­ery. Postoper­a­tive radio­ther­a­py was per­formed. The clin­i­cal, radio­log­i­cal, and his­to­log­i­cal find­ings of epi­du­ral spi­nal heman­gio­per­i­cy­to­ma are ­reviewed in the ­light of rel­e­vant lit­er­a­ture.
