Case Report

Congenital Granular Cell Tumour in a Newborn: A Case Report and Literature Review in China

JM Su, JM Wang, WZ Gu


Congenital granular cell tumour (CGCT) is a rare benign intraoral tumour found exclusively in the newborns. Over 200 cases have been reported from all over the world. Although CGCT in the newborns has been well reported in the literature, very few cases have been reported in China. In this paper, we report a case of congenital granular cell tumour seen on the anterior mandibular alveolus. The patient was a 2-day-old Chinese girl who presented with a pedunculated 3.5 cm-diameter round soft tissue gingival mass protruding from her mouth. We describe the prenatal diagnosis, clinical and histological characteristics of the lesion, and management.
