Glomus Tumor of the Oral Cavity: Report of a Rare Case and Literature Review.

Braz Dent J 2019 Mar-Apr;30(2):185-190. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

School of Dentistry, Oral Pathology Section, Department of Clinical and Preventive Dentistry, UFPE - Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Recife, PE, Brazil.

Glomus tumor is a benign neoplasm composed of a perivascular proliferation of glomic cells that resembles the normal glomus body. Usually, it appears as a solitary, symptomatic small blue-red nodule, located in the deep dermis or subcutis of upper or lower extremities of young to middle-aged adults. Cases affecting the oral cavity are very rare, with only 23 well-documented cases reported in the English-language literature. Read More

Asian J Neurosurg 2019 Jan-Mar;14(1):96-101

Department of Neurosurgery, Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

Introduction: Glomus jugulare are rare vascular tumors arising from the jugular bulb with intra- and extra-cranial extensions. Although considered benign, these tumors are locally invasive with involvement of critical neurovascular structures causing significant morbidity. Due to their highly vascular nature, they pose a challenge for surgeons. Read More

Temporal Bone Paraganglioma: Hearing Outcomes and Rehabilitation.

J Neurol Surg B Skull Base 2019 Apr 14;80(2):209-213. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Neurotology, Michigan Ear Institute, Farmington Hills, Michigan, United States.

Despite numerous advancements in the treatment of skull base tumors, the management of jugular paragangliomas remains controversial and nuanced. Contemporary treatment objectives focus not only on achieving durable tumor control but also on maximizing post-treatment quality of life. While this philosophy places appropriate attention on limiting cranial neuropathies, less discussed morbidities such as hearing loss can have a profound impact on quality of life outcomes. Read More

Painful tumors of the skin: "CALM HOG FLED PEN AND GETS BACK".

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2019 13;12:123-132. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Compass Dermatopathology, San Diego, CA, USA.

Painful tumors of the skin present as dermal or subcutaneous nodules. They can originate from several sources: adipose tissue, cartilage degeneration, deposition of bone or calcium, eccrine glands, fibrous tissue, infiltration of benign (endometrium) or malignant (metastatic neoplasm) tissue, muscle, nerve, or vascular structures. Although pathologic evaluation of the lesion is necessary to determine the diagnosis, it is possible to make a reasonable differential diagnosis based on knowledge of prior tumors that have appeared as tender lesions.

High resolution MRI of nail tumors and tumor-like conditions.

Eur J Radiol 2019 Mar 6;112:93-105. Epub 2019 Jan 6.

Division of Radiology, Department of Imaging and Medical Informatics, Geneva University Hospitals, University of Geneva, Rue Gabrielle-Perret-Gentil 4, 1211, Geneva 14, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Although the nail is a small anatomical structure, it can be affected by various tumors and tumor-like conditions. Because of the distinctive nail anatomy, the clinical presentation of tumors is modified, thus rendering the diagnosis challenging. As nail biopsy and surgery are painful procedures associated with an increased risk of permanent onychodystrophy, pre-operative diagnosis is desirable. Read More

KTP-laser-assisted endoscopic management of glomus tympanicum tumors: A case series.

Ear Nose Throat J 2018 Dec;97(12):399-402

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, 801 Welch Rd., Stanford, CA 94035, USA.

Endoscopic technology is widely used in rhinology and anterior skull base surgery, but it has been less quickly incorporated into otologic practice. The design of the instrumentation forces surgeons to work one-handed and limits depth perception. Nevertheless, endoscopy also offers wide fields of view and access to spaces that are typically difficult to visualize. Read More

Cutaneous malignant glomus tumours: applicability of currently established malignancy criteria for tumours occurring in the skin.

Pathology 2018 Dec 9;50(7):711-717. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Dermatopathology, St John's Institute of Dermatology, St Thomas' Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Glomus tumours (GTs) have traditionally been classified into benign GTs, GTs with uncertain malignant potential and malignant GTs, based on a combination of criteria such as size of the tumour, degree of nuclear atypia and the level of mitotic activity. Several of the proposed grading criteria are difficult, or even impossible to apply for GTs occurring in the skin. The aim of the study was to analyse the applicability of the currently established GT malignancy criteria for tumours occurring in the skin and to establish their prognostic significance. Read More

[Surgical treatment options for cervical paragangliomas].

Chirurg 2019 Jan;90(1):29-36

Universitätsklinik und Poliklinik für Viszerale, Gefäß und Endokrine Chirurgie, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Ernst-Grube-Str. 40, 06120, Halle/Saale, Deutschland.

The therapies available for the rare tumor entity of cervical paraganglioma (PG) are currently undergoing a paradigm shift. The treatment of choice for small carotid body tumors, malignant and active endocrine tumors is surgical resection; however, for locally advanced carotid body tumors and vagal PG, surgical therapy should be critically evaluated. Due to the immediate proximity of these hypervascularized tumors to the caudal cranial nerves, there is a risk of severe nerve damage with a significant impairment of quality of life after resection, particularly for locally advanced cervical PG, emphasizing further the importance of a restrictive surgical strategy.

Glomangiosarcoma Involving the Heart with an Unknown Primary Lesion.

Cureus 2018 Jul 1;10(7):e2907. Epub 2018 Jul 1.

Cardiology, USA Medical Center, Mobile, USA.

Glomus tumors are usually benign tumors of the glomus cells with the immunocytochemical and structural features of smooth muscle cells. The majority of the cases of glomus tumors are benign but, rarely, they demonstrate malignant features both clinically and histologically (also known as glomangiosarcomas). Although glomangiosarcoma involving extracutaneous sites is uncommon, a few cases have been reported. Read More

Current status of functional imaging in neuroblastoma, pheochromocytoma, and paraganglioma disease.

Wien Med Wochenschr 2019 Feb 4;169(1-2):25-32. Epub 2018 Sep 4.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Medical University Innsbruck, Anichstraße 35, 6020, Innsbruck, Austria.

Diagnostic imaging plays an important role in the detection of paraganglioma (PGL), pheochromocytoma (PCC), and neuroblastoma (NB). Anatomic imaging, for example CT or MRI, offers high sensitivity in these neuroendocrine tumors (NET) but only moderate specificity, often associated with difficulties in clearly distinguishing between NET and non-NET. Functional imaging, as in the use of different radioisotopes, is indispensable in oncological imaging. Read More

Intravascular Glomus Tumor of the Wrist Causing Chronic Wrist Pain.

J Hand Microsurg 2018 Aug 20;10(2):113-115. Epub 2018 Mar 20.

Bone and Joint Reconstruction Research Center, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Shafa Orthopedic Hospital, Tehran, Iran.

Glomus tumors are glomus body neoplasms that most commonly occur in the subungual areas of the hand, typically characterized by small nodules associated with localized tenderness, cold sensitivity, and excruciating paroxysmal pain. Extradigital glomus tumors can present a diagnostic challenge because they are rare and usually accompanied by nonspecific symptoms. Intravenous origin of the glomus tumor, especially in the wrist, is much rarer. Read More

Stereotactic radiosurgery for hypervascular intracranial tumors.

J Neurooncol 2018 Dec 20;140(3):547-558. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, Neurological Institute, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, 17F, No. 201, Shih-Pai Road, Sec. 2, Beitou, Taipei, 11217, Taiwan, ROC.

Objective: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of SRS treatment of central neurocytomas (CNCs), cavernous sinus hemangiomas (CSHs), and glomus tumors (GTs); and to compare upfront stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and adjuvant SRS in the treatment of these hypervascular tumors.

Methods: This was a retrospective review of consecutive CNCs, CSHs, and GTs treated with SRS between 1993 and 2017. Tumor response was categorized based on volumetric analysis on magnetic resonance imaging: (1) tumor regression [> 10% decrease in tumor volume (TV)]; (2) stable tumor (≤ 10% change in TV); or (3) tumor progression (> 10% increase in TV).
