Glomus Tumor of Digit: A Case Report
Keywords:Distal phalanx, glomus tumor, soft tissue tumor
Glomus tumors are one of the rare benign tumors accounting for <2% of all the soft tissue tumors in the body with a female propensity and more commonly seen in digits. We report a case of glomus tumor in a 34-year-old female with excruciating pain and mild swelling over distal phalanx of left ring finger which was initially missed for 8 months. The diagnosis was made clinically and confirmed histopathologically after thorough exploration and excision. The present case describes a rare but not uncommon tumor which can be diagnosed clinically with an excellent prognosis and immediate symptomatic relief.
