Glomus tumour of the distal phalanx

A glomus tumour is benign, small, rare tumour, primarily localised to the fingers. Literature describes a delayed diagnosis, and patients will describe a classic triad of symptoms: paroxysmal pain, hypersensitivity, and pinpoint pain at the location of the tumour. MRI can confirm the presence and the localisation of a glomus tumour, and an osseous defect can often be found by X-ray. If the patient show classic symptoms, exploratory surgery should be performed, despite negative radiology. Excision of the tumour will provide immediate pain relief and has a very low rate of recurrence.
