Synopsis

Glomus tumors are rare benign neoplasms composed of glomus cells, blood vessels, and smooth muscle cells. They are classified according to the dominant cell type into 3 types: glomangioma (60%), solid glomus tumors (25%), and glomangiomyoma (15%).

The tumors also exist in 2 forms: solitary and multiple. The most common site for these tumors is on the distal extremities. Multiple glomus tumors are inherited in an autosomal-dominant pattern with incomplete penetrance.

For more information, see OMIM.
