Abstract

A glomus tumor is a rare and benign vascular tumor. It can originate in multiple locations on the body, although it has most frequently been found in subungeal areas of the hand. This two cases report describes a glomus tumor of the hallux, including a recurrence and a review of the related literature. We believe this case study might be of interest due to the unusual location of this tumor.
