Authors: Lui TH, Mak SM

Glomus tumor is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm composed of cells that resemble the modified perivascular smooth muscle cells (glomus cells) of the normal glomus body. A glomus tumor can appear in any part of the body, although it mostly appears in the extremities, especially in the subungual area of the hand. It has been less commonly reported in the foot. A case of glomus tumor of the pulp of the hallux is described in the present report.
