Multiple congenital granular cell epulis in a female newborn: a case report

Author(s): Liang Y, Yang YS, Zhang Y


Introduction:Congenital granular cell epulis is an uncommon tumor which is apparent at birth.

Case presentation:Here we report an unusual case of congenital granular cell epulis present in the mouth of a 4-day-old Asian Chinese female newborn. She had six round, soft, multiple, pedunculated swelling masses, of which two were on her upper anterior ridge and four on her lower anterior ridge. The size of the largest lesion was 3.5×3cm, which was causing difficulty in feeding.

Conclusions:The case of a patient with congenital granular cell epulis was reported here because of its rarity. The lesions were surgically removed and satisfactory results were achieved.
