Answer to last issue’s Case of the Month…

C.Glomangioma

Glomangioma, also known as glomovenous malformation, is a histologic variant of glomus tumor. It is composed of typical glomus cells arranged around cavernous hemangioma-like blood vessels. Most glomus tumors are solitary and benign, although in some cases they may be multiple and even malignant (1).

Submitted by Ivan Damjanov, Professor of Pathology at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Kansas City, USA.
