Dr. Sumanlata Verma, Dr. Pratishtha Rastogi, Dr. Poorvi Mathur

Abstract :

 Glomus tumor, also known as Glomangioma, originates in the neuromyoarterial glomus, a normal arteriovenous shunt abundantly supplied with nerve fies and fulfilling a temperature–regulating function. The classic location of the glomus tumor is the subungual region, but it can occur elsewhere in the skin, soft tissues (particularly in the flexor surface of the arms and about the knee), nerves, stomach, nasal cavity, and trachea. It has also been reported in the sacrococcygeal region, arising from the coccygeal body (glomus coccygeum). We hereby report a case of 45 year old female who underwent a surgical excision of a painful nodule on the dorsum of right foot. On histopathological examination, findings revealed the lesion to be Glomus tumor.
