Glomustumoren sind eine heterogene Gruppe von Tumoren, die von einem Glomus (Knäuel) ausgehen. Diese Knäuel können entweder Paraganglien als endokrin aktive Zellknäuel des peripheren Nervensystems ( Parasympathikus oder Sympathikus ) oder Gefäßknäuel sein . There is a well-defined intensely enhancing mass in the left carotid space, displacing the internal, and external carotid arteries anteriorly, and internal jugular vein posterolaterally. It does not widen the carotid bifurcation . From the case: Glomus vagale tumor Ein Glomus-caroticum-Tumor ist gut operabel, da er sich am Hals in der Carotisgabel an einer leicht zugänglichen Stelle befindet. Glomus-jugulare-Tumoren stellen dagegen eine größere Herausforderung dar. Sie liegen oft sanduhrförmig an der Schädelbasis und können einen extrakraniellen Anteil unterhalb der Schädelbasis haben, aber sich auch entlang des foramen jugulare bis in die hintere Schädelgrube fortsetzen. Um einen solchen Tumor zu operieren, ist die Kooperation von. Synonym: Glomus-jugulare-Tumor 1 Definition Als Paraganglioma jugulare bezeichnet man einen Tumor, der von den parasympathischen Paraganglien in der Wand des Bulbus superior venae jugularis ausgeht. Dieses Paragangliom entspringen der Fossa jugularis und wird auch als Glomus jugulare -Tumor bezeichnet
Der Glomus-vagale-Tumor ist sehr selten (2,5%). Neben diesen 4 Prädilektionsstellen gibt es auch ganz seltene Lokalisationen im Larynx, in der Schilddrüse, im sinonasalen Raum, im Nasopharynx, in der Orbita oder der Zunge. Eine Mischfrom stellt der Glomus-jugulotympanicum-Tumor dar, der sowohl das Foramen jugulare als auch das Promontorium cochleae sowie das Mittelohr einnimmt Glomustumoren (Paragangliome) sind seltene, meist gutartige, neuroendokrine Tumoren, die aus nichtchromaffinen Zellen entstehen und multifokal sowie familiär gehäuft auftreten können.

CHAPTER 141 Glomus Tumors Massimo Gerosa, Paolo Rizzo In past decades, the term glomus tumor (GT) has commonly been used to identify the relatively most frequent and representative neoplastic form in a series of rare oncologic varieties putatively derived from paraganglion tissue. This structure, which originates from the neural crest, actually represents the main histoarchitectur The tumor was first embolized and at surgery, it was wrapped around the vagus nerve (Glomus Vagale).

TOP OF PAGE . TOP OF PAGE. OTOLARYNGOLOGY HOUSTON. Bechara Y. Ghorayeb, MD. Otolaryngology - Head & Neck. Paragangliomas are highly vascular tumors of the paraganglia. The most common location in the head and neck is at the carotid bifurcation, termed carotid body tumor. Additional locations include the jugular fossa (glomus jugulare), tympanic cavity (glomus tympanicum), and along the course of the vagus nerve (glomus vagale). This neck mass has.
Paragangliomas are slow growing, hypervascular neuroendocrine tumors that develop in the extra-adrenal paraganglion tissues. Paraganglioma involving the vagus nerve ganglia is termed glomus vagale. The slow growth of head and neck paragangliomas especially in the absence of symptom may obviate the necessity for any active intervention, in which case, a wait and scan policy is. Glomus vagale Tumore erhalten ihre Blutversorgung aus der Arteria pharyngea ascendens und der Arteria occipitalis . 1.3.5 Glomus tympanicum Tumore Sie sind zwar die seltensten der vier genannten Parangliome, stellen aber den häufigsten primären Tumor im Mittelohr dar. Die Raumforderungen sitzen meist in der Mukosa des Promontorium der medialen Wand des Mittelohres und haben Beziehung zum.
Glomus vagale tumors are paragangliomas that occur along the path of the vagus nerve and are the least common of the head and neck paragangliomas. The key distinction between glomus vagale tumors and carotid body tumors is their relative location in the neck, with glomus vagale tumors arising slightly more cephalad. They often present as a painless mass behind the carotid arteries and nearly. Glomus vagale Glomus tumors which occur lower in the neck typically arise along a nerve called the vagus nerve, and are known as glomus vagale. These tumors usually are noticed because of a change in the voice caused by injury to the vagus nerve which controls the vocal cord on the side of the tumor. Some patients with glomus vagale tumors present with neck pain. Surgery for a glomus vagale.
Vagal Paraganglioma Also known as glomus vagale paraganglioma, vagal body tumor, vagle chemodectoma, glomus vagale Benign tumor arising from neural crest cells of the nodose ganglia of the vagus nerve Look for enhancement on CT with contrast and salt and pepper appearance on T1 MR Arises 1-2 cm below the jugular foramen and can displace fat anteriorly and the IC Glomus body tumori most frequently originato in the middle ear (tympanlcum) or on the Jugular bulb (Jugulare). Tumors that arise from the vagal body account for less than 2.5% of these unique paraganglionic neoplasms. Otologic manifestations of tympanlcum and Jugulare tumors usually precede or accompany neurologic findings. In reviewing five cases of glomus vagale tumors, the Initial symptom. with glomus vagale tumors and meningiomas but even with glomus jugulare tumors it is only preserved about half of the time. (48) Sacrifice of one of the cranial nerves IX, X, XI, or XII is well tolerated both acutely and over the long-term but impaired sensory and motor function, especially of the vagus, does increase the risk of postoperative aspiration, (14) which may occur in nearly 25% of. vessels) and Group II (glomus tumor partially sur-rounding the vessels - see below). The former constitutes 70% of paragangliomas. For all other tumors (Group III carotid body tumors and vagal - jugular - tympanic paragangliomas), iatro-genic postoperative cranial nerve deficits are hard to avoid. A recent review estimated the prevalence of complications in surgically treated carotid. GLOMUS VAGALE - Case Report - Abdul-lAtif HAmdAn*, OmAr SAbrA**, CHArbel rAmeH** And nAbil fuleiHAn* Introduction Glomus tumors, also called paragangliomas or chemodectomas, are highly vascularized benign tumors that arise from cells derived from the primitive neural crest. Unlike the chromaffine-paragangliomas of the abdomen and chest, paragangliomas of the head and neck are usually inactive.
Glomus tympanicum and Glomus jugulare, also known as jugulotympanic paraganglioma: Both commonly present as a middle ear mass resulting in tinnitus (in 80%) and hearing loss (in 60%). The cranial nerves of the jugular foramen may be compressed, resulting swallowing difficulty, or ipsilateral weakness of the upper trapezius and sternocleiodomastoid muscles (from compression of the spinal. Eighteen patients with glomus vagale tumors treated by surgical resection are reviewed. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are diagnostic. Arteriography is used to determine. Glomus complex tumors or paragangliomas are composed of cells of neural crest origin distributed widely throughout the autonomic nervous system.20, 21, 40 Recognized sites of glomus body tissues include the aorta and its major branches, carotid bifurcations (carotid bodies), vagal bodies, jugular bodies, tympanic bodies, ciliary bodies (ciliary ganglion), sphenopalatine bodies (sphenopalatine.
Glomus tumor was also the name formerly (and incorrectly) used for a tumor now called a paraganglioma.. A glomus tumor (also known as a solitary glomus tumor, solid glomus tumor,) is a rare neoplasm arising from the glomus body and mainly found under the nail, on the fingertip or in the foot.: 670 They account for less than 2% of all soft tissue tumors Since 1954, 39 cases of glomus jugulare or vagale tumor have been treated by the authors with radiotherapy. The initial results with orthovoltage (280 kV) therapy were unpredictable, but 30 patients with 32 tumors treated with megavoltage radiotherapy (Cobalt‐60 [60 Co] or linear accelerator) have shown either no evidence of recurrence or complications, with one exception, or died of causes. Glomus jugulare und Glomus vagale sind Tumoren, die in der Nähe der Halsschlagader oder den Vagusnerv beginnen ; Re: Glomustumor Die Möglichkeit besteht den Tumor per MRT darzustellen. Da diese Untersuchung aber relativ teuer ist, kann man den Versuch unternehmen den Tumor per Ultraschall darzustellen. Von daher würde ich mich zuerst für letztere untersuchung entscheiden, und erst wenn. In past decades, the term glomus tumor (GT) has commonly been used to identify the relatively most frequent and representative neoplastic form in a series of rare oncologic varieties putatively derived from paraganglion tissue. This structure, which originates from the neural crest, actually represents the main histoarchitecture for the parasympathetic network of the autonomic nervous system glomus vagale tumors share characteristics with para-gangliomas of those two areas, such as invasion of the carotid arteries, destructionofthe skull base, andcranial neuropathies.
Also known as glomus tumors, paragangliomas are named for the structures they arise from: carotid body tumors are the most common, followed by those involving a large vein called the jugular bulb (glomus jugulare), those involving the middle ear (glomus tympanicum), and finally the vagus nerve (glomus vagale). Paragangliomas may occur at any age, though the majority are diagnosed between. Reports of tumors of the glomus jugulare have increased in recent years and there are now well over 300 recorded cases. The neoplasm has become interesting to radiologists because of both diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. Collaboration with otologists and neurosurgeons has increased the number of cases diagnosed early and has decreased the morbidity and mortality Glomus tumors or chemodectomas are unusual neoplasms of the head and neck. They are more prevalent in the jugular foramen and in the middle ear. Glomus vagale is very rare. To date, there are about 7.. I have all the symptoms of a glomus tumor and different drs agreeing on one..I've read that's it's rare so finding someone with that expertise is difficult. The final diagnoses were my migraines aren't connected to the tumor and the inner ear deficit isn't connected to the tumor and the tumor isn't interfering with anything at the moment so we will watch it..they uped my dose of preventative.
Der Glomus-vagale-Tumor ist sehr selten (2,5%). Neben diesen 4. Epidemiology. The relative prevalence of glomus jugulare with respect to other head and neck paraganglioma varies from publication to publication and depending on the definition of the terms jugulare, tympanicum, and jugulotympanicum. Most agree however that they are more common than glomus vagale 3.. These tumors are seen in. Glomus Jugulare Tumor. A glomus jugulare tumor is a tumor within the skull cavity. The area of the skull affected by this type of tumor is called the jugular foramen siemens.teamplay.end.text. Home Searc AB - BACKGROUND While glomus tumors are usually solitary, multiple glomus tumors do occur. The purpose of this study was to review the clinical characteristics and outcomes in a series of patients with multiple glomus tumors presenting to our institution. METHODS A retrospective review of patients with multiple glomus tumors seen at our institution over the past 25years was performed. RESULTS.
The data on glomus tympanicum and vagale tumors and paragangliomas present in other locations were analyzed and included if necessary. RESULTS. Tables 2 and 3 summarize the clinical, neurological, and follow-up characteristics of the 15 patients analyzed. At the time of the treatment, the patients' mean age was 58.4 years, ranging between 19 and 78 years. Thirteen of the patients were female. Glomus jugulare tumors are rare, slow-growing, hypervascular tumors that arise within the jugular foramen of the temporal bone. They are included in a group of tumors referred to as paragangliomas, which occur at various sites and include carotid body, glomus vagale, and glomus tympanicum tumors
Glomus tumors in individuals with neuroﬁbromatosis type 1 MoniqueG.Kumar,MPhil,MD,a Ryan J. Emnett, MS,b Susan J. Bayliss, MD,a and David H. Gutmann, MD, PhDb Saint Louis, Missouri Background: Glomus tumors have recently been reported in individuals with the neuroﬁbromatosis type 1 (NF1) cancer disposition syndrome. We compare the clinical and molecular features of these painful hamartomas. Glomus vagale tumors: A rare, usually benign tumor that tends to occur mainly in the skin and soft tissues of lower parts of limbs and under the nails but may also rarely occur in other parts of the body including organs. Symptoms depend on the location, size and malignancy of the tumor. Symptoms * Small skin nodules * Red-blue skin nodules * Asymptomatic Causes. Asymptomatic . Diagnosis.

The surgical resection of the tumor with its intracranial extension was achieved without additional postoperative morbidity. The histopatho-logic diagnosis surprisingly demonstrated metastatic RCC. Conclusion We present a case of metastatic RCC to the head and neck region mimicking a. Lebensjahr, während das Paraganglioma jugulare auch als Glomus jugulare-Tumor bekannt ist und in der Fossa jugularis ossis temporalis an der Schädelbasis auftritt. Ebenfalls an der Schädelbasis, aber am Foramen jugulare, verläuft der Nervus vagus entlang, an dem sich das Paraganglioma vagale manifestieren kann
Catecholamine-secreting tumors are a rare cause of syncope.1 We report a case of a dopamine-secreting glomus vagale tumor with detailed clinical and radiologic evaluation and successful pharmacologic treatment. We evaluated a 71-year-old man with a 2.5-year history of episodes of loss of consciousness, all witnessed by members of his family the preoperative diagnosis of glomus tumors was based on selective angiography [5, 7]. Coronal CT scanning is desirable and is recommended by various authors [1, 3, 5, 9-11]. Contrary to the findings of Larson et al. , our CT investigations with a high-resolution technique have yielded lower sensitivity and also lower spec ificity. The diagnosis of small tumors, especially those found at. is the first-line option for jugular and vagal paragangliomas. Conclusions: Because of the complexity of clinical scenarios and treatment options for paragangliomas, a multidisciplinary algorithmic approach should be used for treating paragangliomas. The approach should emphasize single-modality treatment that yields excellent rates of tumor control, low rates of severe, iatrogenic morbidity.
Glomus jugulare und Glomus vagale sind Tumoren, die in der Nähe der Halsschlagader oder den Vagusnerv beginnen. Glomus Tumoren sind in der Regel gutartig , aber. Paragangliom-OP. Wir stehen Ihnen bei, wenn Sie unter einem Glomus jugulare Tumor im seitlichen Abschnitt der Schädelbasis leiden. Vereinfacht ausgedrückt sprechen wir von einem Glomustumor am Ohr bzw. im Bereich des Felsenbeins. Within, the head and neck glomus vagale tumors account for less than 5% of all paragangliomas, with approximately 10% being multicentric. Although histologically these tumors have been shown to contain neurosecretory granules, they are rarely functional. Vagal chemodectomas are histologically benign, but are one of the most difficult tumors of the skull base to manage. Authors present a case. Einleitung: Glomus vagale Tumoren sind vergleichsweise selten und repräsentieren nur 5% aller Paragangliome im Kopf-/ Halsbereich. Sie manifestieren sich im Parapharyngealraum und weisen ein langsames symptomarmes Wachstum entlang des N. vagus auf. Fallbeispiel: Ein 22 Jahre alter Patient stellte sich zur Dysphagieabklärung vor. Enoral fiel eine Vorwölbung des weichen Gaumens und der. Drs Hugh F. Biller and William Lawson, Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, reported their experience with 18 cases of glomus vagal tumors at the April 1988 meeting of the American Laryngological Association in Palm Beach, Fla. Their report showed the female-to-male ratio to be 2:1. The patients.. A glomus, also called a paraganglioma, is a noncancerous tumor that is locally invasive and arises from the glomus cells of the middle ear. These tumors are highly vascularized and usually occur solitarily. They grow slowly and therefore are often caught before any adverse complications occur. They can be found in the jugular bulb, middle ear, and carotid artery. They can also occur in the.
Glomus vagale tumor is a type of paraganglioma, which is a tumor that develops in the paraganglia (a group of cells that are found near nerve cell bunches called ganglia). In most cases, the tumors are benign, although rare cancerous cases have been reported. What is a glomus tumor ear? Glomus tumors, or paragangliomas, are slow-growing, usually benign tumors in the carotid arteries (major. The aim of the study was to present a case of clinically diagnosed glomus vagale in a 42‐year‐old Aboriginal woman treated with external beam radiotherapy and to carry out a review of the published work. The details of presentation, diagnosis, treatment and follow up of the patient are discussed. A review of the published work was carry out using MEDLINE database with respect to aetiology. Glomus tumor are typically benign but highly vascular tumors which arise in association with nerves which exit a very difficult anatomic area beneath the ear. Associated with tiny nerves which exit the skull adjacent to the carotid artery and internal jugular vein are tiny groups of cells called paraganglia. These cells have a special function [ Glomus vagale tumor. Summary: Glomus vagale tumor is a type of paraganglioma, which is a tumor that develops in the paraganglia (a group of cells that are found near nerve cell bunches called ganglia). Glomus vagale tumors, specifically, grow in the paraganglia located 1 More on Glomus vagale tumor » Names and Terminolog glomus vagale.

THE GLOMUS TUMORS These are chemodactomas or non-chromaffin paragangliomas arise from glomus bodies distributed along the parasympathetic nerve in the skull base, thorax & neck 3. GLOMUS TUMOURS Glomus tympanicum - middle ear promontory Glomus jugulare - jugular foramen Glomus vagale - when arising from neck extending towards jugular foramen When arises from carotid bulb - Carotid Body. Vagal paragangliomas (VPGLs) are a prime example of an endocrine tumor associated with the vagus nerve. This rare, Vagus paraganglia is morphologically identical to the carotid body with glomus cells (type I) and located within the nerve or adjacent to the nerve (juxta vagus). Although the role of vagus paraganglia is currently largely unknown, it may act as an immunosensory receptor and.
