It may be benign or malignant. Author experienced a case of hemangiopericytoma occurred in the palatine tonsil of a 64-year-old Korean man. Under general anesthesia, through preliminary tracheostomy, the tumor measuring 5×4×3cm was dissected out. No local recurrence of metastasis occurred up to date (about two and half years after surgery).
