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 3: Operative view of the glomus tumor (inside the circle) : oval in shape with moderate vascularity, and well demarcated with the nerve. The tumor was removed without difficulty using microscopic technique. The tumor was connected to a vessel.

Mentions: The patient underwent surgical exploration and gross total resection was done under spinal anesthesia. Intraoperative ultrasonography was used to localize the mass (Fig. 2). The tan, pinkish white tumor was oval in shape with moderate vascularity, and well demarcated with the nerve tissue (Fig. 3).
