A 65-year-old female with an endobronchial mass lesion.Respir Care. 2013 Aug; 58(8):e95-8.RC
Glomus tumor is a rare, predominantly benign, soft tissue tumor. The lower respiratory tract is an uncommon site of origin of glomus tumor, so endobronchial glomus tumor is extremely rare. Such tumors are mostly benign and identified incidentally on imaging. Diagnosis is confirmed by immunohistochemical staining, and resection is the treatment of choice. We report a middle-age female with endobronchial glomus tumor. This is 23rd case of reported pulmonary glomus tumor, to the best of our knowledge.
