Glomus tumours of the coccygeal body associated with coccydynia. A preliminary report.


Two cases of coccydynia are presented. Their definitive treatment was excision of the coccyx and the pericoccygeal tissues. The histology in both cases revealed a glomus tumour of the coccygeal body and the symptoms were completely relieved after operation. Glomus tumours of the coccygeal body may be the cause of some cases of coccydynia.
