Glomus tumor of the coccyx. A curable cause of coccygodynia.

Author information

Department of Pathology, Barnes Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo.


A 30-year-old woman presented with recurrent severe coccygodynia. She underwent exploration for a possible pilonidal sinus and was found to have a precoccygeal glomus tumor that also involved bony trabeculae of the coccyx. To our knowledge, a glomus tumor involving the coccygeal bone has not been previously documented. In view of the relief of this patient's pain following the surgical excision of coccyx and tumor, a causal role is suggested.
