Glomus tumor constitutes 1 to 5% of all hand tumors. They present with the classical triad of severe pain, point tenderness, and cold sensitivity. The diagnosis is mainly clinical, but very often it is missed because of lack of knowledge or inadequate clinical examination. We present the case of a 43-year-old woman with glomus tumor of the middle finger with a short discussion on the diagnosis with clinical images of the tumor. Glomus tumor should be in the differential diagnosis in patients presenting with pain in the finger.

Keywords: Benign, Cold insensitivity, Glomus tumor.
