Hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) are rare soft tissue tumors. The eyelid is a very uncommon site for these tumors, and an anaplastic variant of HPC in the eyelid has not been reported before. A 44-year-old male presented with complaints of slowly progressive, painless swelling on the inner aspect of the left upper eyelid for 9 months. He underwent local excision of the swelling and histopathology revealed a WHO Grade III anaplastic HPC. Whole body 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography done postoperatively did not show any evidence of local or distant disease. The patient was planned for adjuvant radiotherapy of 60 Gy in 30 fractions over 6 weeks in view of high grade of histopathology and doubtful margins. He is disease free at the time of the last follow-up. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of anaplastic HPC of eyelid being reported in English literature.
