Figure 3: (a-f) Patient 10 presenting with subungual glomus tumour involving the thumb. Pre-operative localization with magnetic resonance imaging helped confirm the location of the tumour. Partial proximal nail avulsion is done. The proximal nail fold (PNF) is retracted and the tumour is removed. The resultant defect and the PNF are sutured. The avulsed nail plate is repositioned and secure dressing is applied
