The chest wall glomangiopericytoma is extremely rare and usually manifests asymptomatically at first. Herein we report a patient, a 50-year-old male, presenting with intermittent left flank pain for more than 5 years. The chest computed tomography disclosed an intrathoracic, extrapulmonary tumor 4.1 x 3.3 cm in size. He underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic tumor excision with uneventful course. The final pathology report showed glomangiopericytoma with clear surgical margin, and no tumor recurrence was encountered after a 26-month follow-up.
