From newborn to toddler: report of two cases of congenital granular cell tumor.

Abstract

A congenital granular cell tumor (CGCT) is an uncommon benign soft tissue lesion that usually arises from the alveolar ridge in newborns. It can severely interfere with the respiratory and feeding systems, if left untreated. We present the cases of 2 newborn infants with protruded intraoral tumors that severely compromised breastfeeding. The tumors were removed by water laser without the need for suturing or pain medication. Histopathologic assessment was performed for definitive diagnosis, and the children were followed until full primary dentition was observed without any sign of CGCT recurrence.
