Glomeruloid hemangioma is a rare, histologically distinctive, cutaneous, benign vascular tumor, originally described by Chan et al. Glomeruloid hemangioma appears specific to polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin changes syndrome (POEMS), and is usually, but not always, related to Castleman's disease. We herein report two cases with glomeruloid hemangioma, without any features of the POEMS syndrome. Glomeruloid hemangioma requires a high index of suspicion for diagnosis. It could rarely present as a solitary finding, without any evidence of an underlying POEMS syndrome.
