Glomangiomatosis, a rare category of glomus tumors, comprises 2% to 3% of glomus tumors in adults. We report a case of glomangiomatosis in a 48-year-old man who underwent multiple excisions of recurrent soft tissue masses in the ankle and foot. Ultrasonography revealed multiple nodular soft tissue tumors and dilated vascular channels with increased blood flow, suggesting the presence of vascular tumors. Here, we discuss the ultrasonography imaging features of glomangiomatosis, which have not been previously reported, correlate them with magnetic resonance imaging findings, and provide a brief review of the literature.
