A 44-year-old male presented with progressing cough, dyspnea and hemoptysis due to a tracheal tumor involving the posterior wall of the lower trachea, with severe airway obstruction and coagulopathy. Consequently the patient underwent segmental resection of the trachea with an end-to-end anastomosis. Twenty months after treatment there remained no evidence of endobronchial recurrence at bronchoscopy or imaging studies. The diagnosis was benign tracheal glomus tumor (GT) which is an exceedingly rare mass lesion in the trachea. There are three subtypes: GT proper, glomangioma and glomangiomyoma. The present study describes the clinical and pathological features of glomangioma through a case report and literature review. To the best of our knowledge, this is the fifth report of glomangioma subtype arising from the trachea. © 2014, Spandidos Publications. All rights received. Source
