Glomangioma, currently termed as glomuvenous malformation, is a rare type of venous malformation (VM) with a rim of glomus cells around the dilated vessels. This glomus cell lesion is not usually as painful as solid glomus tumor. Rarely, thrombus may be seen in the vessels like other VMs. A male with adult-onset extradigital glomangioma presented with a painful nodule with thrombus seen on histopathology. The thrombus was responsible for the tenderness of the lesion, and its presence confirms… Expand


The glomangioma in the differential diagnosis of vascular malformations.
Clinical picture, investigation, surgical treatment, and pathology of this lesion are discussed and a report of an unusual case of a large glomangioma in the shoulder of a 13-year-old female is presented. Expand
Solitary plaque‐like telangiectatic glomangioma
Acquired solitary plaque‐like telangiectatic glomangioma is a new and distinctive variant of cutaneous glomus tumour. Expand
The case of glomangioma is reported in a 43-year-old male who came to dermatology OPD with a painful lesion over the right elbow of six months duration with a single round reddish blue papule and the histopathology was consistent with glom Mangioma. Expand
Glomus tumor.
Although glomus tumors are rare neoplasms, clinical misdiagnosis of many of these lesions as hemangiomas or venous malformations makes an accurate assessment of their actual prevalence difficult. Expand
Facial "glomangiomas": large facial venous malformations with glomus cells.
Multiple plaquelike facial "glomangiomas" mimic a common venous malformation because of their blue hue, and management should differ slightly from that for common facial VM because sclerotherapy has proven to be less effective. Expand
Disseminated cutaneous glomuvenous malformation.
The patient has undergone 2 sessions of sclerotherapy with polidocainol for symptomatic lesions with minimal improvement, and an informed decision will be made regarding planning of future sessions about the nature and usual course of the disease. Expand
Mutations in a novel factor, glomulin, are responsible for glomuvenous malformations ("glomangiomas").
The abnormal phenotype of vascular smooth-muscle cells (VSMCs) in GVMs suggests that glomulin plays an important role in differentiation of these cells--and, thereby, in vascular morphogenesis--especially in cutaneous veins. Expand
