Glomus tumor, first described in 1924 by Masson histologically, is an uncommon benign soft tissue neoplasm. The cells of glomus tumor resemble the modified smooth cells of the normal glomus body. It most often arise in the subungual region of the finger, other less common locations being the eyelid, bone, chest wall and various viscera. Glomus tumor is rarely found in head and neck, especially in the nasal septum. Till 1997, there are only 4 cases of nasal septal glomus tumor reported. In 1997, we encountered a case of glomus tumor on the left side of the nasal septum. Intermittent epistaxis was the only symptom. No recurrence has been noted 14 months after completely excision of the tumor with underlying perichondrium of the septal cartilage.
