Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
