A 66-yr-old female was admitted with a 3-yr history of generalized bone pain and nasal obstruction. CT and MRI of the head revealed a large nasal mass. A whole-body bone scan revealed multifocal lesions of increased activity. Surgical removal of the nasal tumor revealed hemangiopericytoma. The patient improved clinically and a repeat bone scan 10 mo after surgery revealed markedly improved findings.
