Chronic Long Standing Shoulder Pain, Caused by Glomus Tumor.

Geramizadeh B, Khorshidi A, Hodjati H - Rare Tumors (2015)

Bottom Line: Chronic shoulder pain can be caused by muscle, bone and joint inflammatory and tumoral lesions; however, chronic shoulder pain secondary to benign vascular tumor called glomus tumor is an extremely rare occurrence.To the best of our knowledge less than 15 cases of chronic shoulder pain have been reported secondary to glomus tumor.This case has also been unique because if its large size (about 5 cm in greatest diameter).

ABSTRACT
Chronic shoulder pain can be caused by muscle, bone and joint inflammatory and tumoral lesions; however, chronic shoulder pain secondary to benign vascular tumor called glomus tumor is an extremely rare occurrence. To the best of our knowledge less than 15 cases of chronic shoulder pain have been reported secondary to glomus tumor. Herein we report our experience with a young lady who presented with chronic shoulder pain which turned out to be caused by a soft tissue glomus tumor. This case has also been unique because if its large size (about 5 cm in greatest diameter).

A) Magnetic resonance imaging of the neck with GAD injection shows 49×25 mm heterogeneous mass in the supraclavicular area with extension posterior to the clivus; B) gross of the shoulder mass shows hypervascular brown mass; C) histopathologic sections of the resected mass show monotonous glomus cells with no atypia, no mitosis and no necrosis.

Mentions: After the failure of these conservative therapies, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed with GAD. Figure 1A shows the MRI by GAD, which shows a large heterogeneous enhancing mass in supraclavicular area with extension to clivus. Bony parts were unremarkable.
