Glomus tumors (GT) are rare mesenchymal tumors that develop in the subungual digital region. Extradigital GTs are very rare, with atypical clinical features. We report the case of a 63-year-old male with a five-year history of intermittent shoulder pain, where an excisional biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of a glomus tumor.
