Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Glomus tumors are benign neoplasms that develop from normal glomus bodies. These tumors are most commonly found in the nail bed of the hands and are characterized by point tenderness, and temperature sensitivity. Histologically, they are classified into three groups, the least common is glomangiomyoma, which is a variant distinguished by its predominant smooth muscle cellular content. This report describes a patient with a subungual glomangiomyoma that was surgically excised with a favorable outcome. The tumor is unusual for this location; a location common for typical glomus tumors. It presented without the typical associated symptoms of point and temperature sensitivity. This may suggest that the histological type may be more important in predicting the clinical presentation than the anatomical location of the glomus tumor.
