Multiple Congenital Granular Cell Tumor in a Neonate - A Rare Case
Congenital granular cell tumor (CGCT) is an uncommon congenital benign epulis in neonates. A preliminary diagnosis is usually put forth clinically but may be confused with other anomalies. Herein, we report an unusual case of intra oral congenital granular cell tumor in a 4-day-old female newborn. The tumor was excised completely. At 3-month follow-up, the baby is doing fine without any recurrence.
