	abstract = {Glomus tumors are uncommon benign tumors which usually arise from the distal portion of the digits. A tracheal glomus tumor with large size is extremely rare. We present a case of a large tracheal glomus tumor that was resected using posterolateral thoracotomy and successful primary reconstruction of the trachea was achieved. Severe haematemesis happened after the patient was discharged. An emergency exploratory thoracotomy was performed but no signs of anastomotic bleeding were observed, while intraoperative gastroscopy revealed plenty of blood and blood clots in the patient’s stomach. Medical treatments targeting hemorrhage of upper digestive tract were given and the patient finally recovered.},
