• The glomus tumor is a benign, vascular, hamartomatous derivative of the glomus body, a normal intradermal arteriovenous anastomosis. Most glomus tumors are solitary, tender lesions of the nail bed and are found only rarely on the eyelid. Occasionally, glomus tumors assume a multiple form, wherein they are nontender. I report a unique case of multiple glomus tumors involving the face, palate, eyelid, and anterior orbit.
