Intradural extramedullary hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) are extremely rare and a hemangiopericytoma located at the craniovertebral junction might present radiologic features similar to those of meningioma or schwannoma. To the best of our knowledge, this report is among a few reported cases of HPC at the craniovertebral junction. Although they are very rare, HPCs should kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of the intradural extramedullary lesion due to differences in treatment such as adjuvant radiotherapy. Keywords: Craniovertebral junction, hemangiopericytoma, histopathology
