Abstract

Granular cell tumors (GCTs) are uncommon benign neoplasms thought to originate from Schwann cells. They most commonly present in adults as papules or nodules on mucosal sites. The clinical spectrum of GCT in children is not well delineated, although mucosal and cutaneous presentations have been reported. We present three children with cutaneous GCTs and review the literature in an attempt to further characterize this rare pediatric neoplasm.
