A case of hemangiopericytoma (HP) of soft tissue occuring in a 28 year old lady diagnosed by FNAC is reported. Smears were cellular and revealed numerous discretely lying round to oval cells with bland nuclear features and scanty amounts of cytoplasm. Perithelial arrangement of cells could also be demonstrated. A striking feature was the presence of numerous mast cells intimately admixed with tumörcells. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathologic examination of the excised specimen.
