J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2019 Jul-Sep; 12(3):187-190JC

Abstract

Objective

The aim of this study was to present an underutilized and underreported surgical technique in which the glomus tumors situated anywhere under the nail bed can be approached and removed with relative ease.

Materials and Methods

Over 3 years, four cases of subungual glomus tumors, which were surgically managed with this technique were presented. The technical ease, complications, and aesthetic appearance of the nail were studied and presented. The limitation of this study was the lesser volume of cases.

Results

This technique is easy to apply and gives aesthetically good results.
