Glomus Jugularis Tumors

Glomus Jugularis Tumors Abstract THE PURPOSE of this report is to discuss a relatively benign neoplasm, the glomus jugularis tumor, which is seen infrequently, is most likely unrecognized when first observed, and yet is capable of being fatal. We will also present a very interesting case, adding this one to the relatively small number of such tumors reported, and point out some interesting physiological aspects associated with this tumor. Even in the larger clinics this condition is seen so seldom that it will most likely be overlooked when first encountered, especially if the patient is in the younger age group. Descriptions of the glomus tumor appear sporadically because of the infrequency of the appearance of this tumor, yet this tumor presents protean manifestations clinically and, sometimes, confusing opinions pathologically. Microscopically, three tumors have been linked together, the glomus jugularis, the carotid body tumor, and the nonchromaffin paraganglia. The total number of glomus cases reported References 1.

Abstract

Abstract THE PURPOSE of this report is to discuss a relatively benign neoplasm, the glomus jugularis tumor, which is seen infrequently, is most likely unrecognized when first observed, and yet is capable of being fatal. We will also present a very interesting case, adding this one to the relatively small number of such tumors reported, and point out some interesting physiological aspects associated with this tumor. Even in the larger clinics this condition is seen so seldom that it will most likely be overlooked when first encountered, especially if the patient is in the younger age group. Descriptions of the glomus tumor appear sporadically because of the infrequency of the appearance of this tumor, yet this tumor presents protean manifestations clinically and, sometimes, confusing opinions pathologically. Microscopically, three tumors have been linked together, the glomus jugularis, the carotid body tumor, and the nonchromaffin paraganglia. The total number of glomus cases reported References 1.
