A 42-year-old woman developed a purplish, tender nodule on her wrist of 6 months duration. Histological examination showed a well-circumscribed lesion situated in the dermis and subcutis characterized by numerous, dilated thin-walled vascular spaces surrounded by sheets of glomus cells. The histological findings are characteristic of the diagnosis of an uncommon type of glomus tumour, known as glomangioma.
