Congenital Granular Cell Tumor – A Rare Entity

Monal Yuwanati, Shubhangi Mhaske, Ashok Mhaske

Abstract


Congenital granular cell tumor is a rare benign neoplastic growth affecting the gingival mucosa of neonates. Prenatal ultrasound diagnosis has recently come to focus and in spite of several reports on immune-histochemical and other advanced marker studies, the cause and origin of the lesion remains debatable till date. Review of literature on prenatal diagnosis and histopathology along with immunohistochemistry is discussed.
