    Glomangiosarcoma Arising from a Prior Biopsy Site.
    Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2017 Jan 25;5(1):e1219. Epub 2017 Jan 25.
    Department of Surgery, New York Presbyterian-Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, Brooklyn, N.Y.; and The Combined Division of Plastic Surgery, New York-Presbyterian Hospital (Weill Cornell Medicine), New York, N.Y.
    Glomangiosarcoma represents a rare malignant variant of the benign glomus tumor that typically presents as a tender, slowly growing nodule with a predilection for the lower extremities. Unlike their benign counterparts, glomangiosarcomas may display aggressive characteristics such as large size, local invasion, and a tendency to recur after excision. Although wide local excision remains the treatment of choice, rare cases of systemic metastasis have been previously reported. Read More

    Unusual Volar Pulp Location of Glomus Tumor.

    Phenotypic characterization of perivascular myoid cell neoplasms, using myosin 1B, a newly identified human pericyte marker.
    Hum Pathol 2017 Jan 11. Epub 2017 Jan 11.
    Department of Regenerative and Infectious Pathology, Hamamatsu University School of Medicine, 1-20-1, Handayama, Higashi-ku, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka 431-3192, Japan. Electronic address:
    Our aim was to identify pericyte-specific markers for the analysis of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissue samples, and to characterize perivascular myoid cell neoplasms phenotypically. Previously identified pericyte markers failed to distinguish pericytes from other cellular types, such as vascular smooth muscle cells (vSMCs) and fibroblasts, in immunohistochemical (IHC) analysis. However, we compared gene expression profiles between pericytes, vSMCs, and fibroblasts, and performed human skin vasculature IHC analysis, which led to the identification of myosin 1B (MYO1B) as a novel pericyte marker.

    Unusual lesions mimicking impingement syndrome in the shoulder joint - Think medially.
    Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2016 Sep 13;10:88-91. Epub 2016 Aug 13.
    The Robert Jones Agnes Hunt Oswestry Orthopaedic Hospital Shropshire, Shropshire, United Kingdom.
    Impingement syndrome is usually caused by irritation of the rotator cuff within the sub acromial space and this includes the coraco-acromial arch (Acromion and Coraco-acromial ligament), the acromio-clavicular joint and occasionally the coracoid. Iatrogenic causes such as sutures, pins, plates or wires left from previous surgery can cause similar symptoms. We present a series of four cases mimicking "classical" impingement symptoms/signs in which the causal pathology was identified outside the sub-acromial space. Read More

    Extradigital glomus tumor: a rare etiology for wrist soft tissue mass.
    Radiol Case Rep 2016 Sep 17;11(3):195-200. Epub 2016 May 17.
    Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center, Milwaukee, WI, USA.
    Glomus tumors are rare benign hamartomas arising from the neuromyoarterial glomus body, a highly specialized arteriovenous anastomosis responsible for thermoregulation. Although classically associated with a subungual location, less common extradigital glomus tumors can present a diagnostic challenge because of their rarity and nonspecific presentation. This case report adds to the literature of proven extradigital glomus tumors with documented pathologic and magnetic resonance imaging characteristics and describes their place in the differential for soft tissue mass of the wrist.
