Pulmonary glomus tumors are extremely rare, with only 19 cases having been reported worldwide. The glomus body is considered to be related to the regulation of body temperature, but the reported cases were not associated with hyperpyrexia. Here, we describe a 28-year-old man with hyperpyrexia and anemia complicated with a coin lesion of the right lung. After resection of the upper lobe of the right lung by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, all of the patient's symptoms disappeared. The pathologic analysis reported a rare pulmonary glomus tumor. The disease had not recurred by 1 year after operation.
