Biphenotypic sinonasal sarcoma (BSNS) is a recently described, low-grade, slow-growing sarcoma with neural and myogenic features with exclusive location in sinonasal track and characteristic PAX3- MAML3 gene fusion. Differentiating this tumor from its commoner mimics needs knowledge of this entity to avoid over treatment. This tumor has unique morphology, clinical course, and genetics. We report this in a 47-year-old female who was diagnosed with such a rare, solitary fibrous tumor—hemangiopericytoma (HPC-SFT) on limited initial biopsy. On subsequent excision, typical morphology and immunohistochemistry helped to clinch the diagnosis.
