[Granular cell tumors of the esophagus. 5 cases].


The authors report 5 new cases (3 women, 2 men) of granular cell tumours of the oesophagus. Two patients were treated by endoscopic resection with a diathermy loop, two patients underwent surgical ablation and the other tumour was discovered at autopsy. There were no complications related to treatment and there have been no recurrences to date. Endoscopic resection of these tumours would seem to be the treatment of choice when their size is less than 30 mm.
