A case of cutaneous mesenchymal haemangiopericytoma-like tumour affecting a 17-year-old male is presented. Clinical features were non-specific. The tumour was studied by light, electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry. The results of these studies suggested the diagnosis of a mesenchymal, poorly-differentiated tumour showing features of haemangiopericytoma. The clinical course after surgery was uneventful after a 9-month follow-up period.
