Glomus tumors are caused by hyperplasia of the glomus body. Extra-digital glomus tumors are occasionally challenging to identify. We report a case of a patient who was misdiagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and eventually after surgical excision it was found to be a Glomus tumor. Tumors must therefore be considered in the differential diagnosis of individuals with extra digital lesions that present at the wrist with stabbing pain, hypersensitivity, paroxysmal pain, and MRI findings of subcutaneous low T1 high T2 signal cystic lesion.
