Glomuvenous malformations, also known as glomangiomas, are tumor-like malformations or hamartomas of the glomus body. They can be sporadic or inherited as an autosomal dominant disease. Glomuvenous malformations tend to resemble hemangiomas. Clinical distinction between these entities is important due to their different therapeutic approaches. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice for isolated, painful glomuvenous malformations. We describe a case of a 7-year-old girl with multiple glomuvenous malformations.
