Glomus tumors are rare, usually solitary lesions, most commonly presenting as a painful nodule in the subungual location of the digits. Glomus tumors have been reported in multiples and can be found in atypical locations, including the lower leg. We describe sonographic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in a patient with multiple glomus tumors of the lower leg.
