Glomus jugulare tumor (GJT) is a rare benign neoplasm that is located in the skull base; it is impossible for ultrasonography to detect it in most cases. In this article, we present the case of a rare giant GJT, which extended into the internal jugular vein in the neck, initially detected by ultrasonography and confirmed by MRI and pathology. We highlight the initial ultrasonography findings and review the literature to summarize the ultrasonographic features of GJT.

Introduction: Glomus tympanicum (GT) is a benign primary tumor of the middle ear. The evolution of endoscopic ear surgery has allowed for an alternative approach to managing this vascular tumor. The purpose of this study was to evaluate an endoscopic approach in GT surgery, and also to investigate its applicability and feasibility. Materials and Methods: Prospectively, 13 class I and II patients, according to the Glasscock-Jackson glomus classification, were candidates for management via a transcanal endoscopic approach...

Chest wall neoplasms mainly include malignancies, metastatic in particular. Differential diagnosis should include clinical data; tumor location, extent, delineation; the degree of homogeneity; the presence of calcifications; the nature of bone destruction and the degree of vascularization. The aim of the paper is to present both the benefits and limitations of ultrasound for the diagnosis of chest wall neoplasms. The neoplastic process may be limited to the chest wall; it may spread from the chest wall into the intrathoracic structures or spread from the inside of the chest towards the chest wall...

A glomangioma, also known as a glomus tumor, is a benign lesion and had rare occurrence of spine region. In this study, we presented a spinal glomus tumor with an unusual radiological presentation, which is different from osteolytic intraosseous patterns illustrated before. A 26-year-old male with compressive myelopathy caused by epidural intraspinal lesion over T11 level. Radiological presentation revealed reactive sclerotic change over the body and lamina was found on the same level in computed tomography (CT) examination...

Many tumors that occasionally are benign in origin causes hypophosphatemic osteomalacia. Here we present a case of glomus tumor in a 59-year-old man with oncogenic osteomalacia. Diagnosis was made after observation of abnormal increase activity in octreotide scan. The magnetic resonance imaging showed a round lesion in left ankle joint. Surgical excision of tumor was curative and all symptoms and intractable hypophosphatemia improved after few weeks.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs) in the angiogenesis of breast cancer tumors. The expression levels of mutant p53, cluster of differentiation (CD)31, vascular endothelial factor (VEGF), in addition to human epidermal growth factor (HER)2, were detected in the blood vessels of human breast cancer (BC) tissue samples. CD44+/CD24-/low cells were selected from single-cell suspensions of BC tissues to assess the expression of CD31 and CD105, in addition to the ability of these cells to metabolize acetylated low-density lipoprotein (Ac-LDL)...

We present a case of a glomus tumor of trachea in an elderly female who presented with a mass originating from the posterior trachea. She underwent rigid bronchoscopy with tumor debulking combined with laser therapy. Frozen section initially suggested carcinoid tumor but later turned out to be a glomus tumor. She improved with additional laser therapy. We present her clinical course and a literature review on glomus tumor.

INTRODUCTION: Gastric glomus tumors are rare submucosal mesenchymal tumors. Because gastric glomus tumors are submucosal tumors and resemble gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), preoperative diagnosis is difficult. We present a case of gastric glomus tumor that was removed by laparoscopy endoscopy cooperative surgery (LECS). CASE PRESENTATION: A 67-year-old female was taken to the emergency room at our hospital due to epigastric pain. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a submucosal tumor (SMT) located in the lesser curvature of the upper body of the stomach...

CASE: Myopericytoma is a benign perivascular myoid neoplasm that typically presents in the dermal and subcutaneous soft tissues of the distal aspect of the extremities. These types of tumor form a clinicopathological spectrum with myofibromas, angiopericytomas, angioleiomyomas, and glomus tumors. Intraosseous myopericytomas are exceptionally rare, and to our knowledge, no cases of myopericytoma involving long bones previously have been described. We present a case of myopericytoma occurring in the distal aspect of the femur of a 36-year-old man...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to describe the findings associated with gastric pathology and to identify the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Gastric specimens of a total of 291 patients (225 females, 66 males; mean age: 42 years; range: 18 to 60 years) who underwent LSG for the treatment of morbid obesity were analyzed. Histopathologic diagnoses and their relation with body mass index (BMI), age and gender were evaluated...

Glomus tumor in the genital area is extremely rare, with an extensive search in the medical literature revealing only 1 case arising in the scrotum. They can be easily mistaken, both clinically and radiologically, for skin neoplasms or primary testicular tumors involving the scrotum. This report presents a case of a 54-year-old man who presented with a painful right scrotal swelling. Ultrasound suggested the possibility of an epidermal inclusion cyst. The excised mass was diagnosed as a benign glomus tumor...

BACKGROUND: Glomus jugulare tumors (GJTs) are rare benign tumors, which pose significant treatment challenges due to proximity to critical structures. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term clinical and radiological outcome in patients undergoing stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for GJTs through retrospective study. METHODS: Forty-two patients with 43 GJTs were treated using Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS; Elekta AB, Stockholm, Sweden) at our institute from 1997 to 2016...

Glomus tumors (GTs) of the trachea are very rare neoplasms that usually arise from the distal portion of the respiratory tree. The origin of these tumors is modified smooth muscle cells of glomus bodies. In this study, we describe two cases of GT of the trachea, as well as the histologic features of these tumors and their treatments. One tumor was diagnosed via bronchoscopic biopsy, and the other tumor was diagnosed via surgery. Clinical follow-up showed that the two patients are alive and well after 8 and 15 months post-treatment, respectively...

Onychomycosis is a common nail infection caused by dermatophytes, while non-dermatophytes including Aspergillus spp. are causes of nail onychomycosis. Aspergillus niger is not common as a cause of nail onychomycosis. In the current study we present a 60-year-old woman with subungual onychomycosis due to Aspergillus niger mimicking a glomus tumor. Physical examination revealed right thumb had a black color of nail bed. Localized tenderness and severe pain were observed. However, the cold sensitivity test, Loves pin test and Hildreths test were negative...

Objective: To investigate the clincopathologic and immunohistochemical features of gastric glomus tumors and their differences from gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms. Methods: Six cases of gastric glomus tumors, 8 cases of glomus tumors in other sites and 7 cases of gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms were collected from the Department of Pathology, Taizhou Hospital. The clinicopathological and immunohistochemical characteristics of these tumors were analyzed retrospectively. Results: The gastric glomus tumors were located in the muscularis propria of the antrum and most cases strongly expressed synaptophysin (5/6)...
