: Four cases of hemangiopericytoma of the spine are reported. These are rare tumors that arise from the pericytes. Due to their invasive nature and marked vascularity, a detailed radiological work-up including computed tomography and spinal angiography should be obtained before a direct surgical attack is performed. Embolization of the tumor may also be quite helpful before surgical excision and has allowed a gross total removal of the tumor in two of the cases. (Neurosurgery 10:473-479, 1982)
