REVIEW OF LITERATURE: Glomus tumour is an uncommon benign neoplasm of glomus cells, which are modified smooth muscle cells mostly found in arterio-venous anastomoses of the extremities.
Glomangiomyomas represent less than 10% of glomus tumors and display a gradual transition from glomus cells to elongated, mature smooth muscle cells.
The infiltrate composed mainly of monomorphic round or polygonal glomus cells with round or ovoid nucleus and scant eosinophilic cytoplasm.
These vascular structures are surrounded by rounded uniform epithelioid cells with granular cytoplasm known as glomus cells or pericytes.
