Abstract

Objective: Primary intracranial or spinal hemangiopericytoma (HPC) represents a rare tumour that is more difficult to distinguish from other CNS tumours based on clinical symptoms and imaging findings. In this article, here we present 5 cases with HPC (3 intracranial and 2 spinal) with histologically confirmed were treated at our hospital between June 2009 to January 2010, and a review of the literature pertaining to the diagnosis, clinical management, and so on. Methods: Clinical data of the 5 patients with HPCs from cerebra and spinal cord including the manifestations of imaging, pathology, treatment and prognosis factors were investigated, and relevant literatures were reviewed. Of which, 3 males, 2 females, age ranged from 6-35 years old, median age at primary diagnosis was 29 years. Results: 3 patients underwent craniotomy and the other 2 patients underwent spinal surgery. Total mass removal was achieved in 1 case and subtotal removal in 4 cases. All 5 patients received radiotherapy after resection, A total dose of 59.4 Gy/33f was delivered in a fractionation of 5 x1.8 Gy per week for the 3 patients with cerebral lesions using three dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) or intensive modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) technique, and 45Gy in 25 fractions for the 2 patients with spinal lesions. The patients were followed up varied from 6 to 27 months, and none of the patients was found with evidence of radiation complications. Acute toxicity was mild including skin erythema and alopecia. Follow-up of the patients has not yet discovered that a tumour recurrence and extra-cranial metastasis all remain alive up to date. Conclusions: Multidisciplinary care should be highly advocated in the management of intracranial or spinal HPC. Surgical resection, either complete or subtotal excision, followed by postoperative radiotherapy, will provide the patients with higher probability for disease-free survival.
