Clinical manifestation

Solitary glomus tumor: paroxysmal pain, which can be severe and exacerbated by pressure or temperature changes, especially cold; blanchable blue or purple papule, located most commonly in acral areas, especially subungual areas of fingers and toes

Multiple glomus tumors: pain relatively uncommon

• Regional variant: blue-to-purple, compressible papules or nodules that are grouped and limited to a specific area, most commonly an extremity

• Disseminated variant: multiple lesions distributed over the body with no specific grouping; congenital plaquelike glomus tumors: grouped papules coalescing into indurated plaques or clusters of discrete nodules
