Main clinical features
  • venous malformations with glomus cells
  • glomangioma, multiple
  • vascular lesions of the skin, histologically distinguished by their distended vein-like channels containing characteristic 'glomus cells', which appear to be incompletely or improperly differentiated vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs)

    Gene product
    Name glomulin, FKBP associated protein
    Remark(s) acquired somatic uniparental isodisomy rendering the inherited glomulin variant in 1p22.1 homozygous explains multifocality of glomuvenous malformations PMID: 23375657
