Glomus tumor is a rare benign tumor commonly involving fingers and toes. While it has also been reported to have occurred elsewhere, there are only a handful reported cases. Diagnosis may be uncertain due to non-specific symptoms, inability to detect on physical examination or routine investigations and radiographs. This case report highlights the importance of awareness of this rare tumor and its presentation in rare locations.
