Abstract

Rare benign tumors called subungual glomus tumors that develop from the glomus body can cause sharp discomfort under the nail. This case involves a 38-year-old female patient who has been complaining of severe pain above her left thumbnail for 13 years. Under general anesthesia, a transungular technique was used to remove the tumor mass, and histology revealed a subungual glomus tumor. To lessen the damage and deformity to the nail bed, the tumor mass must be completely removed. To get the right diagnosis, it's crucial to consider specific clinical traits such as intense pain, regional soreness, and cold sensitivity. The diagnosis can be verified, and the tumor mass can be located with the use of a physical examination and imageology.
