Glomus tumours tend to be diagnosed with long delay due to lack of knowledge about the condition. This is a case report of two patients with longstanding symptoms, which remained undiagnosed for several years despite X-ray and MRI. One was operated on without finding the tumour at the initial surgical procedure, and the other had the diagnosis confirmed by ultrasound. Both were cured of the pain, when the subungual tumour was excised.
