Glomus tumors of the head and neck typically compress adjacent blood vessels and cranial nerves and result in varied clinical presentations. Moreover, they are seldom encountered, even at large medical centers, and specialists in neurosurgery, otolaryngology, and radiation oncology have yet to reach a generalized consensus regarding the optimal management approach. In an effort to summarize the available data and better elucidate optimal treatment and management strategies for glomus tumors, we conducted a review of the published literature on this topic with emphasis on stereotactic radiosurgery.
