Background: Myopericytomas are rare tumors originating from perivascular myoid cells, with overlapping features of glomus tumors and myofibromas.
Case Report: We present a case of intravascular myopericytoma, a rare variant of myopericytomas, with a mass located in the neck. This case is accompanied by a review of the rel-evant literature discussing its histomorphological and immunohistochemical features. In histopathology, this tumor is characterized by spindle or epithelioid cells that surround the vessels in a concentric pattern.
Conclusion: While these tumors most commonly occur in extremities, they are rarely seen in the head, neck, and trunk. Even though they are generally considered benign, it’s import-ant to note that cases showing increased mitotic activity, recurrence, and metastasis have been reported.

Keywords: Myopericytoma, intravascular, angioleiomyoma.
