Glomus tumors are maturely organized proliferations of glomus cells and vascular

channels. Such tumors are rare in the stomach, and only two cases have been reported

in Korea. Because specific clinical or radiologic features are not associated with the

glomus tumor, it can be recognized only by histologic characteristics. Although available

data are inadequate for determining the histogenesis of this tumor, it may represent a

hamartoma rather than a neoplastic disease. The treatment of choice is local resection.

In frozen sections, it may be misidentified as a carcinoid tumor, leading to more

extensive surgery than required for cure. We report a case of a glomus tumor of the

stomach in a 30-year-old female patient who was operated on, and we present a review

of the literature on this subject.
