Granular cell tumours

A Review of Granular Cell Tumours at the University Hospital of the West Indies: 1965–2006

An analysis of granular cell tumours confirmed their uncommon occurrence. However, many more lesions than expected, developed in the breast and vulva compared to the tongue which is the most commonly reported location.


Objective: Granular cell tumours are uncommon lesions that occur in a wide variety of sites. They are usually benign, but as they are infrequently diagnosed preoperatively, they may be confused clinically with malignant lesions. The objective of this study was to assess the relative frequency and the clinicopathologic characteristics of granular cell tumours identified at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) over a 41-year period.
