Glomus tumours causing limb hypoplasia

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/74-B/5/779

They may cause severe hyperaesthesia and pain, and are most frequent in the second and third decades of life (King 1954). We report a 15-year-old boy with two glomus tumours located in the foot...

Studies in this case support that hypothesis: they showed the important role...
