Amillo S, Arriola FJ, Munoz G. Extradigital glomus tumour causing thigh pain: a case report. J Bone Joint Surg Br 1997 Jan;79(1):104-106
Glomus tumours are rare and benign, arising from a neuromyoarterial glomus body,
most commonly in the hand. We report a patient with such a tumour in an atypical
site, the right vastus lateralis. Pain was aggravated by muscle contraction, and
ultrasonography and MRI were required to locate the lesion accurately. Surgical
excision gave immediate pain relief.
