Glomangioma, or "glomic tumour" is a benign soft tissue tumour appearing most commonly at the distal extremities, in the nailbed and subcutaneous tissue. This is a vascular tumour, rare for the dermatologist, and exceptional in an ENT site. We describe here what is, as far as we can tell from the literature, the eighteenth case. The problem is the diagnosis of a vascular tumour, arising usually from the septal mucosa, which has to be distinguished histopathologically from a haemangiopericytoma. Radiological investigation will define the extent of the tumour and guide the treatment plan, which is purely surgical and consists of wide excision to avoid the possibility of a local recurrence.
