Özet

Glomangiomas are benign soft tissue tumors derived from the glomus bodies surrounding arteriovenous anastomoses. In this article, we report a 40-year-old female patient admitted to our clinic due to chest pain whose computed tomography of the chest revealed a solitary lesion of 4 cm in diameter. The lesion was removed with video-assisted thoracoscopic wedge resection. The histopathological diagnosis was reported as glomangioma. Glomus bodies almost never exist in the lung parenchyma; thus, pulmonary glomangiomas are extremely rare lesions. They can easily be confused with more common primary or metastatic lesions of the lungs. Risk of recurrence is low for this tumor and sublobar complete resection is the treatment of choice for definitive diagnosis and curative treatment.
