Abstract

In 28 patients with glomus tumors of the digits, 21 were relieved of symptoms by excision of a solitary tumor. Seven other patients had multiple tumors, four of which were the cause of recurrent symptoms. Three patients had multiple tumors - five in one patient, four in another, and two in a third, which had been found at the time of the first operation. A 25% incidence of multiple tumors and a 15% incidence of recurrent symptoms indicates that a careful search should be made for additional tumors.
