11/41. Glomangioma of the upper limb associated with hypoplastic-dysplastic superficial venous system.

    The diagnosis and therapy of vascular malformations is difficult. An important factor, which influences the therapeutic approach, is the complicated vascular network of the lesions. The frequent involvement of various structures (muscles, bones or other organs) makes the surgical intervention arduous. Glomus tumors are rare, symptomatic (painful) lesions, with dimensions ranging 3-10 mm and usually subungual location, which need radical resection as a therapy. The case we present is the first one where a glomus tumor presents as a hypoplastic-dysplastic superficial venous system, located parallel to the normal superficial venous system of the left upper extremity, resembling a form of varicosities. The atypical clinical presentation and the unique morphology classify this case in a very limited category of nosological entities.

12/41. Congenital nodular multiple glomangioma: a case report.

    A 13 year old girl presented with recurrent painful "varicosities" on her right calf. These lesions were subsequently clinically diagnosed as "cavernous haemangiomas" after normal duplex scanning and were excised. Histological examination revealed multiple glomangiomas (glomus tumours). A literature review revealed only two reported cases of nodular multiple glomangioma, so that this is the third case to be reported in the literature.

13/41. Multiple occurrences of different histologic types of the glomus tumor.

    A patient with 3 glomus tumors that occurred at different locations and times is presented. Two of the 3 tumors were of the same histologic type. The third tumor was a different type. Although it is rare, a solitary type of glomus tumor on initial presentation may exhibit multiple occurrences in the same patient.

14/41. Glomus tumour in a child.

    Glomus tumours are uncommon neoplasms. Very rarely do they present in the paediatric age group. We describe a case of bilateral glomus tumours in a 13-year-old girl that were successfully treated with radiotherapy. The patient remains well 8 years after completion of treatment.

15/41. Multiple glomangiomas of lower limb.

    A young man with multiple painful nodules on the left lower limb is presented. histology of one of the nodules proved the diagnosis of glomangioma.

16/41. Malignant glomus tumour--a case report.

    Glomus tumours are usually benign neoplasms of glomus bodies. Here we report a rare case of malignant glomus tumour of soft tissue. The tumour was 8 cm in size, infiltrating deep tissue, with nuclear atypia, high mitotic activity (6/HPF), atypical mitosis and showed recurrence, thus fulfilling all the criteria of malignancy.

17/41. The glomangioma in the differential diagnosis of vascular malformations.

    Glomus tumors develop from a thermoregulatory unit called the glomus body which is found in high density within the digits of both the hands and feet. To note, even though less frequently, these tumors can present in extradigital locations. Usually it presents as a small, 1-cm bluish nodule. Glomangioma (multiple glomus tumors) is to be differentiated clinically from the more solitary glomus tumor on the basis of larger size and prominent vascular markings. Although glomangioma is described in literature, the major textbooks of plastic surgery fail to mention it. A report of an unusual case of a large glomangioma in the shoulder of a 13-year-old female is presented. Clinical picture, investigation, surgical treatment, and pathology of this lesion are discussed.

18/41. magnetic resonance imaging of a glomus tumor. A case report.

    The diagnosis of a glomus tumor in the pulp of a finger was confirmed by the use of magnetic resonance imaging. diagnosis of this disorder is often perplexing. magnetic resonance imaging has been found effective for locating and diagnosing finger lesions and, in this case, a glomus tumor in the pulp of the finger.

19/41. Locally infiltrative glomus tumors and glomangiosarcomas. A clinical, ultrastructural, and immunohistochemical study.

    Six cases of locally aggressive and/or potentially malignant glomus tumors are described. On the basis of clinical and pathologic criteria, the following classification is proposed. The first category is a locally infiltrative glomus tumor (LIGT) which has the usual glomus histologic features. The second group is a cytologically malignant tumor arising and merging with a typical glomus tumor, designated glomangiosarcoma arising in a benign glomus (GABG). The third category and the most difficult to recognize is the de novo glomangiosarcoma (GADN), which must be distinguished from other round cell sarcomas. Most of these locally aggressive glomus tumors are vimentin positive and are immunoreactive for muscle-specific actin. Electron microscopic examination in one GABG case showed cells with numerous microfilaments and pinocytotic vesicles; a second GADN case contained cells with microfilaments and an incomplete basal lamina. As a group these locally aggressive or potentially malignant glomus tumors are larger and more deeply located than the conventional glomus tumor. Although 50% of these tumors recurred locally, none have metastasized.

20/41. A clinicopathological study on soft tissue tumors of the head and neck.

    The present study consists of 651 cases of soft tissue tumors originating in the head and neck area. Among these tumors 628 were benign (96%), while there were only 23 malignant cases (4%). In the benign group hemangiomas showed the highest incidence (47%) followed by tumors of adipose tissue (19%) and those of peripheral nerves (12%). Rare tumors consisted of nodular fascitis, hibernoma, lipoblastomatosis, glomus tumor, granular cell tumor, and chondroma. The majority of cases in the malignant group were either those of muscle origin or blood vessel origin. Excepting for two cases of rhabdomyosarcoma of the embryonal type and two cases of angiosarcoma, all showed recurrence and/or metastasis and terminated in death. Three cases of liposarcoma of either well-differentiated or myxoid type had a good prognosis with all three living for 3 or more years without any recurrence. Other malignant tumors consisted of malignant schwannoma, fibrosarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, alveolar soft part sarcoma, and chordoma. The age, sex, anatomical location, and differential diagnosis have also been described.
