Oral Abrikossoff Tumor: A Report of Uncommon Presentation


Ashwini, V. Naveen Shankar and V. Praveena

Abrikossoff tumor or Granular cell tumor usually present as unencapsulated, small, firm white mass, usually less than 2 cm with infiltrative borders. The histogenesis seems to be neural and most likely Schwann cell in origin. The lesion will present as an asymptomatic mass usually in the submucosa. Usually it behaves as a benign lesion; however, about 2% of the cases can present a malignant course. Here we report a case of large diffused painful swelling in the palate in a 9 year old boy. This was diagnosed as benign granular cell tumor on histopathologically, but had malignant clinical characteristics.
