A case of a diffuse growing glomus tumor with interstitial infiltration of the musculus vastus medialis and intermedius (quadriceps muscle) in a 21-year-old woman is reported. The tumor was diagnosed by needle biopsy and then removed with wide margins. The typical histological appearance and the immunohistochemical findings in the resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis. Histogenesis and the biological behavior of glomus tumors are discussed.
