We report two cases of congenital hemangiopericytoma localized in the abdominal wall in the first patient and scalp in the second. The treatment of both cases consisted in the complete resection of the tumor mass. Four and two years later the patients remain asymptomatic. The special interest in this case report lies in the extremely low incidence of congenital hemangiopericytoma and that this is the first reference to affected siblings.
