Gastric granular cell tumour, a rare entity


Granular cell tumours are rare neoplasms that may occur anywhere in the body. The most common locations are the oral cavity, skin and subcutaneous tissue, with only 8% of these tumours occurring at a gastrointestinal site. In the specific case of gastric granular cell tumours, only a few cases have been published until today. Granular cell tumours are usually benign; however, some malignant forms have been reported.
