    The authors discuss an interesting case of a Pacinian corpuscle neuroma in the finger of a young woman who presented with severe digital pain. The clinical signs were very prominent. The patient had complete pain relief following excision of the tumor. Pacinian corpuscle neuromas are rare, with only about few cases reported in the literature. The histology, presenting features and associated conditions are discussed in detail. In addition to a neuroma or glomus tumor, Pacinian corpuscle hyperplasia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of digital or palmar pain of unknown etiology.
