Multiple glomus tumors presenting as an aesthetic abnormality.
UNLABELLED: Glomus tumors are benign soft-tissue neoplasms. Commonly found in the digits, glomus tumors can rarely arise in extradigital locations and may result in misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis. Plastic surgeons should therefore include glomus tumors in the differential diagnosis of patients who present with painful, red- or blue-colored extradigital lesions. The authors present a rare case of extradigital glomangioma tumors of the right and left thigh in a 35-year-old woman. This case report describes an atypical presentation of multiple glomus tumors and reviews diagnostic and treatment modalities.
