Solitary glomus tumors of the digits are uncommon, comprising only about 2% of all hand tumors. In this report, we present a case report of a patient with bilateral glomus tumors that became symptomatic 4 years apart. No inheritance pattern was apparent for this patient. An extensive literature review did not uncover a similar patient. Because this condition does not appear to be widely recognized, we suggest that it be considered when patients present with bilateral digital pain.
