Glomus tumour of the hallux: diagnosis by Doppler-shift ultrasound and digital subtraction angiography.

Abstract

A case is presented of a glomangioma with typical history and clinical findings, proven by operation and histology. Unique radiographic features are demonstrated including visualization of the tumour on a soft tissue radiograph and associated hyperaemic bone changes, continuous wave Doppler results indicating hyperaemia and an arterio-venous malformation, and the clear demonstration of the tumour in both frontal and lateral views was possible by intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA) under local anaesthesia. Fibrous dysplasia of a femur was an incidental finding.
