Abstract

Splenic hemangiopericytoma is a very rare tumor. So far only 10 patients (9 adults, 1 child) have been reported in the literature and all of them were treated with total splenectomy. Herein, we report the first infant case of the splenic hemangiopericytoma in a 10-month-old girl and the first case that was treated with partial splenectomy for splenic hemangiopericytoma.
