Glomus tumor is a rare benign neoplasm that arises from the neuroarterial structure called a glomus body and accounts for 1–2% of soft tissue tumors in the hand. The patients with glomus tumor will present with excruciating pain, disproportionate to their signs, as the majority of the time there are no visible manifestations. Hence, these patients are treated with all the specialties (including psychiatrists) with different combinations of analgesics, anxiolytics, and antidepressants. A strong clinical suspicion and a properly planned surgery remain the treatment. We present a case of a 36-year-old male suffering from excruciating pain, demanding to the extent of amputation, was diagnosed clinically based on his history and treated for subungal glomus tumor of a left middle finger.
