Abstract

PRABHU, N et al. Congenital granular cell tumour: An unusual antenatal presentation with a 12- year follow-up. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2015, vol.70, n.2, pp.50-52. ISSN 0375-1562.

Congenital epulis, also known as congenital granular-cell tumour (CGCT) is a rare benign entity that occurs in neonates. The size and prominent location of the lesion(s) in the oral cavity ensures early recognition. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive background of this rare lesion and discusses the presentation in a neonate diagnosed at 35 weeks on a routine ultrasound. Oral health practitioners should be aware that these lesions may cause dental developmental anomalies at the site where they occur.

Keywords : Congenital epulis in newborn; Granular cell tumour; EXIT procedure.
