Glomangioma is a rare neoplasm that typically occurs in soft tissue of the extremities, particularly the subungual region of the fingertip. Osteochondromas are benign proliferations composed of mature bone and a cartilaginous cap. A case involving a 9-year-old boy with two benign masses (glomangioma and osteochondroma) on his right leg is presented. To our knowledge, this is the first case of glomangioma associated with osteochondroma in a child that has been reported. [Turk J Cancer 2008;38(4):194- 197]
