Multiple glomus tumors or glomangiomas are extremely rare and differ from the more common solitary glomus tumor in their clinical presentation and hystological features. The Authors report a case of multiple glomus tumor of the left thigh and of the chest and review the features of this uncommon tumor. Glomangiomas usually present as bluish nodules often inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern and in the majority of cases are confined to the cutis. Extracutaneous involvement is reported but is extremely rare, confirming the benign biological behaviour of this condition.
