Our aim was to identify pericyte-specific markers for the analysis of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) human tissue samples, and to characterize perivascular myoid cell neoplasms phenotypically. Previously identified pericyte markers failed to distinguish pericytes from other cellular types, such as vascular smooth muscle cells (vSMCs) and fibroblasts, in immunohistochemical (IHC) analysis. However, we compared gene expression profiles between pericytes, vSMCs, and fibroblasts, and performed human skin vasculature IHC analysis, which led to the identification of myosin 1B (MYO1B) as a novel pericyte marker...

Glomus tumors are uncommon, benign, small neurovascular neoplasms derived from glomus bodies in the reticular dermis. Glomus bodies are found throughout the body to regulate body temperature and skin circulation; however, they are concentrated in the fingers and the sole of the foot. The typical presentation is a solitary nodule in the subungual or periungual area of the distal phalanx. The primary treatment of choice is surgical removal. We investigated expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) using immunohistochemistry in glomus tumors of the fingers...

We report a case of a 76-year-old man that referred to our hospital because of progressive mixed right hearing loss, aural fullness and pulsatile tinnitus synchronized with heart beats. Otoscopic examination revealed a reddish pulsatile mass beyond tympanic membrane. CT and MRI scans showed a class C glomus tumor. Anamnesis and a complete physical examination, with careful differential diagnosis, should be obtained to rule out highly vascularized middle ear lesion before any invasive procedure.

Cholesterol granuloma (CG) is the most common benign lesion of the petrous apex, however, it can grow significantly large and become destructive causing a diagnostic dilemma. This case presents a 25-year-old female with 2-year history of left-sided progressive and profound hearing loss, a transient left-sided facial paralysis and cranial nerve 10 palsy who presented with a blue middle ear mass. Her diagnosis did not become apparent until direct visualization intraoperatively. The objective of this case study is to highlight the destructive capabilities of CG and the importance to keep it in the differential diagnosis of a large, erosive, expansile skull base lesion in order to avoid overly aggressive resection or other unnecessary treatment...

We retrospectively collected cases of surgically proven extradigital glomus tumor (EDGT) and reviewed their demographic, clinical, and sonography features. A total of 18 single, subcutaneous EDGTs were gathered. All but one were located in the extremities. EDGTs typically appear as a small, hypoechoic, homogeneous, or slightly inhomogeneous, well-delimited nodule, disposed horizontally and painful under probe pressure. Intranodular vascularization is always present. Feeding artery and efferent vein are typical but inconstant findings...

INTRODUCTION: Tumors affecting structures in the vicinity of jugular foramen such as glomus jugulare require microsurgical approach to access this region. These tumors tend to alter the normal architecture of the jugular foramen by invading it. Therefore, it is not feasible to have correct anatomic visualization of the foramen in the presence of such pathologies. Hence, a comprehensive knowledge of the jugular foramen is needed by all the neurosurgeons while doing surgery in this region...

Gastric glomus tumors are rare, mesenchymal neoplasms, generally described as benign and account for nearly 1% of all gastrointestinal soft tissue tumors. The most common gastrointestinal site of involvement is the stomach, particularly the antrum. Gastric glomus tumors are submucosal tumors that lack specific clinical and endoscopic characteristics, and are often mistaken for the more common gastrointestinal stromal tumors. A 62-year-old Caucasian female presented with shortness of breath and a persistent cough...

INTRODUCTION: Glomus tumors are benign neoplasms commonly found in subungual regions of the extremities and rarely located in the penis. Misdiagnosis of glomus tumors is common; therefore, symptoms and clinical presentations should be reviewed. OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of this review article is to emphasize the pathogenesis, pathology, clinical presentation, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment methods of glomus tumors in order to better identify and manage the condition...

Carotid body paragangliomas (CBPGLs) are a rare neoplasms of the neuroendocrine system that affect the carotid glomus. The aim of this study is to improve their management in our Departments. This retrospective analysis reports family history, clinical presentation, imaging diagnostics, Shamblin classification, surgical treatment, complications, and the outcome of seven patients with CBPGLs. All lesions were represented by a painless cervical mass, with no functional or bilateral neck tumors. One patient had two different localizations (the second one was a glomus tumor of the right prelachrymal sac), and a family history for CBPGL...

MASSON described glomus tumour as a benign neuromyoarterial proliferation. It represents approximately 1% -5% of all tumors of the hand. Pain is the main clinical sign. Definitive diagnosis is based on a body of evidence: clinical and radiological but only histology will allow confirmation. We conducted a retrospective study of 11 patient whose average age was of 36, 27 years (range 8-48 years), with a mean follow-up period of 34,40 months. All patients underwent surgical excision. This strategy allowed us to achieve satisfactory results...

Glomus tumors are rare tumors most often occurring in the extremities of the limbs. We report a unique case of a glomus tumor, originally arising in the paraspinal region, which was excised and subsequently recurred in the chest wall with malignant transformation. The recurrence is likely to have been caused by wound seeding. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in the English literature of a glomus tumor recurrence secondary to the notion of wound seeding.

Glomus tumors are uncommon tumors that are originated from smooth muscle cells of the neuromioarterials glomus bodies located in the arteriovenous anastomoses subcutaneous tissue or deep dermis of the extremities, mainly in the palms of the hands, wrists and subungual areas of the fingers. Carcinoid tumor, as the glomus tumor, can show an organoid pattern, increased vascularity, and uniform, round cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm, but usually are positive for cytokeratin and always stained with chromogranin and synaptophysin showing negative for smooth muscle markers which is presented in our case...

We report a 38-year-old woman with a left lung tumor presenting as obstructive pneumonia. Bronchoscopic examination revealed a polypoid tumor filling the left main bronchus. The tumor was partially resected by a snaring procedure for diagnostic purposes. Microscopic examination revealed a submucosal tumor located underneath normal bronchial epithelium. The tumor was composed of sheets of uniform oval to cuboidal cells encompassing numerous blood vessels. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells exhibited smooth muscle markers, but were negative for neuroendocrine markers...

Background: Glomus tumors are uncommon vascular tumors of the hand. Malignant glomus tumors, known as glomangiosarcomas, are very rare and offer management challenges. Methods: A review of the diagnosis and treatment of malignant glomus tumors is presented in along with a report of the largest malignant glomus tumor of the hand to date. Results: The review illustrates the management of glomangiosarcomas. Only 6 previous such cases have been reported. Conclusion: The rare nature of malignant glomus tumors mandates case presentation and longitudinal analysis to help guide surgical management an optimize outcomes...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness on function preservation and tumor control of the treatment of glomus tympanicum tumors with pre-operative embolization followed by total surgical resection. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We describe a series of 6 patients with a glomus tympanicum tumor who were treated in our hospital using the same technique: the day before surgery selective tumor embolization due to denaturation with 96% ethanol. Following parameters were considered: tumor classification, tumor control, clinical and audiological outcome, effectiveness of embolization, percentage of tumor necrosis and treatment complications...
