Painful glomus tumors near the coccyx have not yet been described before. Three patients with coccygodynia were treated by excision of the glomus coccygeum. All of them were free of pain afterwards. Two glomus tumors were found. The tumors of the glomus coccygeum are compared with the well-known glomus tumors "Masson".
