1/5. Unusual eustachian tube mass: glomus tympanicum.

    SUMMARY: A case of recurrent glomus tympanicum presenting with epistaxis is described. CT and MR imaging revealed a homogeneously enhancing mass extending along the entire course of the eustachian tube, with a portion protruding into the nasopharynx. Glomus tumors tend to spread along the path of least resistance and may extend into the eustachian tube. The unique imaging appearance should place a glomus tumor high on the list of differential diagnoses.

2/5. epistaxis as a rare presenting feature of glomus tympanicum.

    Glomus tumours are the most common primary neoplasms of the middle ear, typically benign and slowly progressive. Pulsatile tinnitus and ipsilateral hearing loss are the most common symptoms at presentation by far; otalgia, aural fullness and otorrhoea being less frequent. A case of primary glomus tympanicum presenting with recurrent epistaxis, previously unreported in the literature, is described and associated imaging presented.

3/5. Jugulotympanic paraganglioma (glomus tumour) presenting with recurrent epistaxis.

    A case is presented where a left jugulotympanic paraganglioma (JTP) extended to the nasopharynx and the patient presented with recurrent epistaxis. Although initial biopsy of an aural polyp had been suggestive of the diagnosis several years previously, the diagnosis was not confirmed until the patient presented with recurrent epistaxis and severe anaemia. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reported of such a presentation of JTP.

4/5. Recurrent epistaxis from an intranasal glomus tumor: the 22nd case report.

    The case of a 66-year-old Thai woman who was treated at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital due to recurrent epistaxis for two years is presented. Her physical examination revealed a 0.7-cm tumor mass on the right nasal septum. A biopsy was subsequently done and the tissue was sent for pathological examination. The lesion was then diagnosed as "glomus tumor of the nasal septum". Histologically, the tumor was rather well-circumscribed and located in the submucosal region. The neoplastic cells were uniform, round to ovoid in shape and contained bland-looking, finely chromatic nuclei and moderate amount of cytoplasm with ill-defined cell borders. These cells were intervened by tortuous vascular structures. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were strongly reactive to smooth muscle actin and negative to cytokeratin and S-100 protein. A glomus tumor is rare in the sinonasal region. So far, there have been only 21 reported cases in the literature. Almost all cases of sinonasal glomus tumor are benign and are usually cured by complete excision.

5/5. Nasopharyngeal extension of glomus tympanicum: an unusual clinical and imaging manifestation.

    Nasopharyngeal extension of the glomus tympanicum is rare. Only 2 cases have been reported in the literature to date. We present a reported case of a large nasopharyngeal extension of recurrent glomus tympanicum, with various kinds of imaging and histopathology and a review of the literature.
