Two cases of the rare entity, multiple glomus tumors of the skin, occurred, illustrating the localized and the generalized variety. Inheritance of the condition was not noted in either case. In one case the tumors appeared shortly after birth. In the other case the total number of lesions exceeded that previously described. Thrombocytopenia was present in this case, as has been noted in extensive cavernous hemangiomas, but never previously in association with multiple glomus tumors of the skin.
