  • [Title] [Glomus tumor of the stomach: a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding].
  • [Transliterated title] Nadir bir gastrointestinal kanama nedeni: Midenin glomus tümörü
  • Glomus tumors are benign soft tissue neoplasms that usually arise in the skin of the extremities; however, those tumors are sometimes located in other sites such as gastrointestinal (GIS), respiratory, and genital tracts.
  • Gastrointestinal glomus tumors are mostly located in the gastric antrum.
  • Herein, we report a case of a glomus tumor of the stomach in a 31-year-old female patient who presented with intermittent nausea, vomiting, hematemesis and melena for 2 months.
  • Immunohistochemical examination showed the glomus tumor.
  • Since the glomus tumor is essentially benign and does not need a radical surgical procedure, the most important aspect of this tumor is its histologic identification and differentiation from more common gastric lesions, especially from malignant tumors.

  • [Title] Radiosurgery for glomus jugulare tumors.
  • Glomus jugulare tumors arise from adventitial chemoreceptor tissue in the jugular bulb.
  • Although histologically benign, these tumors can be locally aggressive because of their proximity to the lower cranial nerves and major vascular structures.
  • Radiosurgery has recently emerged as a promising alternative to older therapeutic strategies for treatment of glomus jugulare tumors.
  • This article reviews the latest benefits of radiosurgery and demonstrates how this modality represents an effective treatment option for glomus jugulare tumors with excellent tumor control and low risk for morbidity.
  • In addition, this article will detail the role of minimally invasive sub-total resection of glomus jugulare tumors as a surgical complement to gamma knife therapy.

  • [Title] Recurrent digital glomus tumor: analysis of 75 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: Glomus tumors are rare, benign, cutaneous neoplasms that must be excised completely to prevent recurrence.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate factors associated with recurrence of glomus tumors after surgery.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Fifty-eight women and 17 men with digital glomus tumors underwent surgery between 1990 and 2008 at our hospital.
  • The tumor was located on a finger in 70 cases (right, 29; left, 41) and a toe in five (right, 3; left, 2).
  • The tumor recurred in 13 (17%) patients.
  • Recurrence was more likely if the tumor was skin-colored (odds ratio (OR)=31.67, 95% confidence interval (CI)=2.68-373.74, p=.006) or located within the nail matrix (OR=5.79, 95% CI=1.03-32.49, p=.046).

  • Multinuclear cells were present as were numerous small-to-medium vessels throughout the tumor.
  • The tumor stroma showed myxoid areas.
  • The histological features and immunoprofile were consistent with the diagnosis of symplastic glomus tumor, a rare histological variant, which has been defined as a glomus tumor exhibiting marked nuclear atypia, in the absence of any other criteria for malignancy.
  • The biological behavior of the tumor is benign.
  • It is essential to differentiate this entity from malignant glomus tumor, which has metastatic potential.
  • Even prominent cellular atypia and nuclear pleomorphism in a glomus tumor as in our case is not a marker of malignancy in the absence of additional criteria.

  • Symplastic glomus tumors are defined as glomus tumors with a high-grade nuclear pleomorphism in the absence of any other malignant features, such as large size, deep location, infiltrative growth, mitotic activity, or necrosis.
  • It could be a challenge for pathologists who have no experience with it because the tumor can show marked nuclear atypia and pleomorphism.
  • Despite its high nuclear grade, a symplastic glomus tumor itself has a benign biologic behavior.
  • Hereby, the authors report a case of a symplastic glomus tumor on the right index finger tip of a 44-year-old woman with a literature review.

  • The authors present a 74-year-old woman with an exceptionally large glomus tumor of the mesentrium with malignant features.
  • Previously reported cases of intraabdominal glomus tumor in the abdominal cavity exhibited benign behavior and few cases with metastatic disease.
  • Criteria for malignancy in acral glomus tumors, such as unusually large size, infiltrative growth, necrosis, nuclear atypia, and mitotic activity, seem not to translate to abdominal glomus tumors.
  • As very few intraabdominal glomus are described, the malignant potential of these tumors stays uncertain for longer period.

  • [Title] Glomus tumor of the stomach: a case report.
  • Glomus tumors are relatively uncommon benign neoplasms, most common in the skin and subcutaneous tissue, but can also occur in the viscera, most often in the stomach.
  • Preoperative diagnosis, when the tumor occurs in the stomach, seems difficult but is important, since glomus tumors of the stomach are essentially benign and amenable to conservative excision, contrary to aggressive gastric neoplasms.
  • Biopsies taken from the lesion showed morphological and immunohistochemical [positivity for alphasmooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) and vimentin, negativity for CD34, CD117, chromogranin, synaptophysin, desmin and S-100 protein] characteristics attributable to glomus tumor.
  • Histological examination of the tumor confirmed the diagnosis of gastric glomus tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Subungual glomus tumors of the fingers: ultrasound diagnosis].
  • INTRODUCTION: Glomus tumors of the fingers are rare, benign tumors.
  • These lesions are hamartomas, originating from dermoepidermic glomus, most commonly located at the distal phalanx, and in particular under the nail.
  • The aim of this retrospective study is to define the role of ultrasound examination in the diagnosis of glomus tumors of the fingers.
  • METHOD: During the period March 2002-March 2004, 12 cases of subungueal glomus tumors were included in this retrospective study.
  • The mean size of the tumor was 3.5 mm.
  • In eleven patients, ultrasound study was able to confirm the diagnosis, but it failed in one case because of the small size of the tumor (less than 2 mm).
  • Ten tumors presented a Doppler hypersignal, located in the tumor and compatible with the diagnosis of glomus tumor.
  • DISCUSSION: Diagnosis of glomus tumor is based on clinical examination, standard radiology, and ultrasound Doppler study.

  • Surgical resection of the glomus tumor is the definitive treatment with resolution of all symptoms.
  • The nine most recent cases of glomus tumor underwent surgery after clinical assessment alone.
  • In our opinion clinical examination is the most effective method to diagnose this type of tumor and in selected cases it may be sufficient to undergo surgical therapy.

  • [Title] Diagnosis and management of glomus tumors of the hand.
  • AIM AND BACKGROUND: Glomus tumors are hamartomas that account for 1% to 5% of all soft tissue tumors of the hand.
  • These tumors are usually benign.
  • Herein, we present our experience with 8 patients diagnosed with glomus tumors treated within the past 10 years.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eight patients who were diagnosed with glomus tumor of the hand were treated.
  • Excruciating pain upon palpating the tumor was present in all the patients.
  • Imaging studies such as magnetic resonance imaging were obtained but were only marginally helpful in locating and defining the surface topography for tumor resection.
  • RESULTS: Complete excision of the tumor with free margins was confirmed in all 8 cases.
  • However, 1 of the patients had recurrence of the tumor, which presented 4 weeks postoperatively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Glomus tumor is a rare disease; we encountered only 0.26% cases in our patients (3014 patients referring for hand surgery) during a 10-year period.
  • Preoperative marking of the maximum point of pain helps the surgeon somewhat to locate the tumor clinically.

  • [Title] Glomus jugulare tumors: the option of gamma knife radiosurgery.
  • OBJECTIVE: Glomus jugulare tumors are generally considered slow-growing, benign lesions.
  • METHODS: Between 1996 and 2005, we used GKR to treat 20 patients bearing growing glomus jugulare tumors, mostly classified as Glasscock-Jackson Grade IV or Fisch Stage D1.
  • Regarding the radiosurgical dose planning, the average tumor volume was 7.03 cm (range, 1.5-13.4 cm) and the mean marginal dose was 17.3 Gy (range, 13-24 Gy).
  • Tumor volume was unchanged in 11 out of 20 patients and was slightly (<or= 20%) decreased in eight out of 20 patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Despite the constraints of the limited case material, considering the estimated doubling time of these rare tumors (4.2 yr), our preliminary results with GKR at a mid-term follow-up examination suggest an effective tumor growth control with negligible incidence of untoward sequelae.

  • [Title] Glomus tumor of the stomach simulating a gastrointestinal stromal tumor: a case report and review of literature.
  • Glomus tumor is an infrequent and in most cases benign mesenchymal neoplasia which affects subcutaneous/submucosal tissue and occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, solid organs (e.g. liver, kidney) and the extremities.
  • Visceral glomus tumor of the stomach generally presents with non-specific epigastric pain, loss of appetite and GI bleeding (melaena), often without haemodynamic instability.
  • Endosonographic appearances are generally heterogenous and poorly-reflective, hence fail to differentiate glomus tumor from other potential diagnoses.
  • These difficulties in diagnosis mean that in many cases, only immunohistochemical analysis of surgically resected tissue can distinguish glomus tumor from several possible differentials.
  • Therefore, endoscopically-assisted laparoscopic curative wedge-resection of a lesion suspicious for glomus tumor of the upper gastrointestinal tract must be considered first-line in terms of a combined investigative and curative approach.

  • INTRODUCTION: Glomus tumours are rare benign neoplasms of myoepithelial origin.
  • Due to characteristic and painful symptoms, glomus tumours are a major clinical problem.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Due to its rare occurrence, glomus tumours are often missed out in the differential diagnosis of musculoskeletal pain.
  • The agonising pain makes glomus tumours a significant clinical problem that should be remembered about, especially as surgery brings about spectacular improvement.

  • OBJECT: Glomus jugulare tumors (GJTs) are slow-growing benign tumors arising from paraganglion cells of the superior vagal ganglion.
  • The treatment strategy was either multimodal, with microsurgical tumor volume reduction followed by GKS in patients suffering from brainstem compression, or GKS as the only treatment.
  • Follow-up examinations included thorough neurological examinations and neuroradiological quantitative volumetric tumor analysis.
  • Tumor volumes ranging from 1.6 to 24.8 cm3 were treated using prescription doses of 14 to 20 Gy (nine-28 isocenters).
  • The achieved overall tumor control rate after GKS was 100% (33 months mean follow up) with only mild side effects observed.
  • A tumor volume reduction (mean 41.1%; 3.2 cm3) was achieved in all patients.
  • The tumor volume reductions achieved are comparable to those achieved using microsurgery but with a much lower rate of side effects.

  • Glomus tumours are uncommon benign neoplasms characterised by the proliferation of modified smooth muscle cells known as glomus cells.
  • Glomus tumours are well described in the extremities, particularly in the sub-ungual region and MRI is well established as the investigation of choice.
  • However, a significant proportion of glomus tumours are extra-digital, but the discussion of MRI findings of extra-digital tumours is limited and restricted to case reports.
  • We present a case of a solitary painful forearm lesion in an 81-year-old man, and review the English literature on extra-digital glomus tumours documenting MR imaging features.

  • Gastric glomus tumours are rare and clinically recognized as benign.
  • During the last 40 years, we have encountered only one gastric glomus tumour.
  • During 37 months' follow-up, no recurrence or metastasis was detected and a benign course was considered likely.
  • Literature on the immunohistochemistry and biological behaviour of gastric glomus tumours was also reviewed.
  • Immunohistochemical studies are helpful in the differential diagnosis of gastric glomus tumours: although most are benign, malignancy cannot be excluded.

  • [Title] Linac-based stereotactic body radiation therapy for treatment of glomus jugulare tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Glomus jugulare tumors are rare, typically benign, tumors that arise from the neural crest cells that are associated with the autonomic ganglia in and around the jugular bulb.
  • Treatment options for glomus jugulare tumors include embolization followed by resection, fractionated external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and/or stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT).
  • Fifteen patients (83%) had single glomus jugulare tumors and 3 patients had bilateral glomus jugulare tumors (although each of these patients had a single tumor targeted).
  • The median tumor volume was 5.83 cm(3) (range, 0.32-35.47 cm(3)).
  • One patient had undergone previous EBRT and 2 patients were previously treated with Gamma Knife radiosurgery to the intracranial portion of their tumor, with planned SBRT to the extracranial portion 2-4 months later at our institution.
  • The median prescription coverage of the tumor was 93.6% (range: 83-98.72%).
  • The tumor was stable in 17 patients and decreased in size in one patient--yielding a local control rate of 100%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SBRT is a safe and efficacious treatment modality for glomus jugulare tumors.

  • Glomus vagale tumours are a subtype of paragangliomas of the head and neck derived from extra-adrenal paraganglia of the autonomic nervous system.
  • They are typically slow-growing, benign masses that are often asymptomatic and rarely show signs of hypersecretion.
  • Glomus vagale tumours are rare and should be managed in a multidisciplinary head and neck clinic with both surgical and radiation oncology opinions offered.

  • [Title] Glomus tumors in neurofibromatosis type 1: genetic, functional, and clinical evidence of a novel association.
  • Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common disorder that arises secondary to mutations in the tumor suppressor gene NF1.
  • Glomus tumors are small, benign but painful tumors that originate from the glomus body, a thermoregulatory shunt concentrated in the fingers and toes.
  • We report 11 individuals with NF1 who harbored 20 glomus tumors of the fingers and 1 in the toe; 5 individuals had multiple glomus tumors.
  • In 12 NF1-associated glomus tumors, we used cell culture and laser capture microdissection to isolate DNA.
  • We also analyzed two sporadic (not NF1-associated) glomus tumors.
  • RAS mitogen-activated protein kinase hyperactivation was observed in cultured NF1(-/-) glomus cells, reflecting a lack of inhibition of the pathway by functional neurofibromin, the protein product of NF1.
  • No abnormalities in NF1 or RAS mitogen-activated protein kinase activation were found in sporadic glomus tumors.
  • By comparative genomic hybridization, we observed amplification of the 3'-end of CRTAC1 and a deletion of the 5'-end of WASF1 in two NF1-associated glomus tumors.
  • For the first time, we show that loss of neurofibromin function is crucial in the pathogenesis of glomus tumors in NF1.
  • Glomus tumors of the fingers or toes should be considered as part of the tumor spectrum of NF1.

  • [Title] Staged Gamma Knife radiosurgery after tailored surgical resection: a novel treatment paradigm for glomus jugulare tumors.
  • OBJECT: Although benign and slow growing, glomus jugulare tumors can be locally aggressive because of their proximity to lower cranial nerves and major vascular structures.
  • We report a novel treatment paradigm of tailored surgical resection followed by staged radiosurgery that allows for tissue diagnosis and immediate improvement of symptoms and tumor control without the morbidity of radical surgical resection.
  • METHODS: Five patients with glomus jugulare tumors and contraindications to extensive surgery each underwent an outpatient otologic procedure to resect the portion of the tumor in the middle ear and mastoid with no attempt to remove tumor in the jugular bulb.
  • Each patient returned 2-5 months later for Gamma Knife radiosurgery to the remainder of the tumor, which consisted of one 15-Gy dose prescribed to the 50% isodose curve.
  • Tumor volume was stable or reduced in all patients at most recent follow-up, and there were no immediate or delayed complications.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Staged outpatient microsurgical and radiosurgical therapy for glomus jugulare tumors in the symptomatic patient is safe and yields favorable results regarding tumor size, tinnitus, hearing and cranial nerve status.

  • [Title] Diagnosis, management, and complications of glomus tumours of the digits in neurofibromatosis type 1.
  • BACKGROUND: Glomus tumours are benign painful tumours of the glomus body, a thermoregulatory shunt in the digits.
  • Glomus tumours of the fingers and toes are associated with the monogenic disorder neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and are recently recognised as part of the NF1 phenotype.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: A multi-institutional experience with 15 individuals with NF1 and glomus tumours of the fingers or toes is reported.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Glomus tumours in NF1 are more common than previously recognised and NF1 patients should be specifically queried about fingertip or toe pain.

  • CONCLUSION: Among mass lesions inside the temporal bone, benign tumors and cholesteatomas can be differentiated by contrast enhancement in T1-weighted images (T1WI) and by diffusion-weighted images (DWI).
  • RESULTS: One patient had facial schwannoma, two had glomus jugulare tumor, and three had cholesteatoma.
  • MRI study provided us with better clues: contrast enhancement on T1WI was observed only in benign tumors and only cholesteatomas showed high intensity on DWI.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Less common indications for stereotactic radiosurgery or fractionated radiotherapy for patients with benign brain tumors.
  • Microsurgical resection remains the mainstay of treatment for truly benign brain tumors that can be safely resected because of the potential for permanent cure with most histologic findings, including most of the histologic findings discussed in this article.
  • Physicians must keep in mind the indolent nature of many of the benign brain tumors and realize that many patients are likely to live out normal life spans if tumor control is achieved.
  • Therefore, it is not sufficient simply to consider local tumor control rates and short-term toxicity risks when choosing between surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and fractionated radiotherapy.
  • For benign brain tumors, these decisions may have consequences that last for decades.

  • [Title] Multisession cyberknife stereotactic radiosurgery of large, benign cranial base tumors: preliminary study.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although radiosurgery plays an important role in managing benign cranial base lesions, the potential for increased toxicity with single-session treatment of large tumors is a concern.
  • METHODS: Between 1999 and 2008, 34 consecutive patients with large (>15 cm), benign cranial base tumors (21 meningiomas, 9 schwannomas, 4 glomus jugulare tumors) underwent primary or postoperative radiosurgical treatment using a multisession approach at Stanford University and were considered in this retrospective study.
  • CyberKnife radiosurgery was delivered in 2 to 5 sessions (median, 3 sessions) to a median tumor volume of 19.3 cm (range, 15.8-69.3 cm).
  • CONCLUSION: Over our modest length of follow-up, multisession radiosurgery appears to be a safe and effective option for selected large, benign brain and cranial base lesions.

  • Perivascular neoplasms comprise traditionally glomus tumor and hemangiopericytoma (HPC).
  • Whereas glomus tumor represents a well-defined entity, the existence of HPC as a separate entity has been questioned because a number of neoplasms of different lines of differentiation are characterized by a HPC-like vascular growth pattern.
  • Histologically, in all cases, numerous thin-walled vessels and a concentric, perivascular arrangement of ovoid, plump spindled to round myoid tumor cells was seen.
  • Despite overlapping morphologic features to angioleiomyoma and myofibroma, myopericytoma represents a distinct perivascular, myoid neoplasm of skin and soft tissues, characterized by a broad morphologic spectrum of concentrically, perivascularly growing myoid tumor cells that stain positively for ASMA and often for h-caldesmon, whereas desmin is usually negative.
  • Most cases of myopericytoma behave in a benign fashion, but local recurrences and rarely metastases may occur in atypical and malignant neoplasms.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In the most recent classification, cardiac tumors are divided into benign (about 75% and malignant neoplasms in relationship to their tissue differentiation (rhabdomyoma, haemangioma, etc.) or uncertain aetiology (myxoma, papillary fibroelastoma).
  • The most frequent tumor is cardiac myxoma, which by itself represents about 50% of all primary cardiac neoplasms.
  • This is due, besides the intrinsic rarity, to two main factors: first, the tumor is often asymptomatic (incidental autopic finding) or; alternatively, it may show aspecif symptoms mimicking heart failure or other pathologies.

  • Pain was a presenting complaint in five patients with benign disease (6%), and five of the seven malignant patients (71%) presented with pain, showing a significant association between pain and disease type (P < 0.0001).
  • The odds ratio for a patient with pain having a malignant tumor was 36 (95% CI: 5.5-234).
  • Enlarging neck mass was noted in all cases of malignant disease, but only in 31 percent of cases of benign disease (P < 0.0001).
  • In a secondary analysis of carotid body tumors alone, enlarging neck mass was not found to be significant between benign and malignant disease (P = 0.14).
  • However, pain continued to be significantly different, with 67 percent of malignant lesions demonstrating pain, compared with only 11 percent of benign lesions (P = 0.01).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Myopericytoma is a rare, recently described tumor demonstrating a hemangiopericytoma-like vascular pattern.
  • Despite sharing morphologic features with angioleiomyoma, myofibroma and glomus tumor, myopericytoma is thought to represent a distinct perivascular myoid neoplasm of skin and soft tissues.
  • The tumor is characterized by a radial and perivascular arrangement of ovoid, spindled to round neoplastic cells that are immunoreactive to alpha-smooth muscle actin, often for h-caldesmon as well as smooth muscle myosin-heavy chain, and usually negative for desmin antibodies.
  • Most cases of myopericytoma are benign, however, local recurrence and malignancy have recently been reported, Myopericytoma can be multifocal involving a single or multiple anatomic regions, and tends to occur in dermal and superficial soft tissues of adults primarily on the extremities.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Paragangliomas are highly vascularized usually benign neoplasms arising from nerve tissue.
  • Our purpose was to evaluate angiographic and clinical outcome using Onyx for percutaneous glomus tumor embolization.
  • Nevertheless, Onyx seems to be safe when used percutaneously due to its lavalike pattern flow and its controllable properties, allowing slow tumor bed penetration.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We searched pathology and medical record databases under the terms pheochromocytoma, paraganglioma, head and neck tumors, carotid body tumors, glomus jugulare, and neuroendocrine tumors.
  • Compared with patients with head and neck paraganglioma, patients with pheochromocytoma or abdominal and pelvic paraganglioma were younger (35.7 +/- 16 years vs 43 +/- 17 years, P = .042) and were more likely to have the classic triad associated with catecholamine hypersecretion of palpitation, excessive sweating, and headache (40% vs 0%, P<.001); hypertension (70% vs 37%, P = .005); and benign tumors (65% vs 43%, P = .03).
  • Patients with head and neck paraganglioma and patients with pheochromocytoma/abdominal and pelvic paraganglioma were not different in female to male ratios (27:19 vs 29:11, respectively, P = .18), tumor size (5.8 +/- 2.7 cm vs 5.7 +/- 3 cm, respectively; P = .85), or remission rate (43% vs 60%, respectively, P = .13).

  • Paragangliomas, or glomus tumors, are highly vascular benign tumors of the head and neck.
  • Preoperative embolization can reduce morbidity, and several techniques have been described using arterial injection of particles or of cyanoacrylate directly into the tumor.
  • This case report is of a patient treated by surgery using a new technique-preoperative embolization involving both the arteries and veins, and injection of Onyx, resulting in complete devascularization of the tumor's arteriovenous network.

  • The terms glomus or chemodectoma arose with knowledge of the histological structure of these tumors; their paraganglionic cells, together with autonomic ganglion cells, form the paraganglia, and consequently the most appropriate term to describe these tumors is paraganglioma.
  • Classification of these tumors varies according to the parameter chosen: patient age, secretory capacity or biochemical behavior, whether the tumor is isolated or syndromic, or benign or malignant, etc.
  • Moreover, there are other classifications based on other features such as localization, extension, the recommended surgical approach, immunohistochemical characteristics of the tumor, whether the tumor is hereditary, etc.
