MAEHARA, Laura de Sena Nogueir et al. Diagnosis of glomus tumor by nail bed and matrix dermoscopy. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.2, pp.236-238. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000200018.
Surgery is the best treatment for glomus tumors. Sometimes this can be a challenging procedure because, despite being a well-defined tumor, its visualization can be difficult. The use of nail bed and matrix dermoscopy facilitates the diagnosis and aids in the localization and demarcation of the tumor. It is a simple and low-cost procedure that does not involve additional risks to the patient who will undergo surgery.
