Glomus tumours are usually benign neoplasms of glomus bodies. Here we report a rare case of malignant glomus tumour of soft tissue. The tumour was 8 cm in size, infiltrating deep tissue, with nuclear atypia, high mitotic activity (6/HPF), atypical mitosis and showed recurrence, thus fulfilling all the criteria of malignancy.
