Abstract
Glomus tumor, a tumor of the neuromyoarterial apparatus, is a relatively uncommon, benign vascular tumor described as originating from glomus bodies within the reticular dermis. Although the tumor may occur anywhere, up to 75 % are found in the hand the most common site is the subungal region of the finger. The glomus tumor arising from the volar aspect of the finger has not been reported up to our literature review. This report describes a glomus tumor arising from the volar aspect of the distal phalanx of the middle finger, which was very difficult to diagnose preoperatively due to very unusual location and unusual symptoms.
