ABSTRACT
The glomus tumor of the peripheral nerve is one of the mesenchymal tumors originating in the epineurium, and is extremely rare. A 56-year-old man presented complaining of lancinating pain on the left thigh, which was provoked by pressure or exercise. Subsequent image study revealed a mass in the femoral nerve. Total surgical excision with the aid of intraoperative ultrasonography was performed and the pain was successfully controlled. The authors report an unusual case of a patient diagnosed with glomus tumor in peripheral nerve, with a review of the clinical features, imaging, and pathological findings.

Figure 1: MRI shows a 2.5 cm sized well-defined enhancing mass (arrowhead) in the femoral nerve among rectus femoris, vastus lateralis and vastus intermedius at mid-thigh level.

Mentions: The magnetic resonance images showed a well-defined, enhancing mass of 2.5 cm in diameter at left mid-thigh level, in between the rectus femoris, vastus laterlis, and vastus intermedius muscles (Fig. 1). The mass was formed along a muscular branch of the femoral nerve, and thus resembled a neurogenic tumor of femoral nerve branch, such as schwannoma. The initial differential diagnoses before operation were schwannoma or post-traumatic painful neuroma.
