✓ The authors present the case of a 34-week-old fetus with a meningeal hemangiopericytoma that was diagnosed in utero by using abdominal magnetic resonance imaging. After birth, the neonate underwent transfontanelle ultrasonography and computerized tomography scanning of the head, which confirmed the presence of an extradural hyperdense lesion. Six hours after birth the neonate underwent a craniotomy, which resulted in complete resection of the mass. The postoperative period was uneventful and the newborn was discharged 7 days later. At 2-year follow-up examination there was no evidence of recurrence of the lesion. The authors have found no mention in the literature of this entity diagnosed in the prenatal period.
