Abstract

Granular cell tumor (GCT), eponymically Abrikossoff’s myoblastoma, is an uncommon asymptomatic benign neoplasm with controversial etiopathogenia. The tumor typically reveals itself as a well-circumscribed, slowly growing nodular mass. Tongue is most commonly preferred in the head and neck region. The conventional size of the granular cell tumor is usually measuring 2-3 centimeters in its greater diameter. The granular cell tumor can taint all age groups, with a peak between 40 and 60 years. This report introduces, however, a case of GCT of the tongue in a much younger female that was totally excised. The clientele has shown up after 1, 3 and 6 months for follow-up. In the head and neck region, there was no evidence of either recurrence or metachronous clinical manifestations of any similar lesions; at the clinical and sonographicalassessment.
