ABSTRACT
Congenital granular cell tumor (CGCT), or congenital epulis, is an uncommon benign soft tissue lesion that usually arises from the alveolar mucosa of neonates and may cause respiratory and feeding problems. The histogenesis and clinical history of the lesion remains obscure. Treatment involves surgical excision and recurrences are rare. The present report describes a case of congenital granular cell lesion (CGCL) in the anterior segment of maxillary alveolar ridge of a 2-month-old female. This lesion was causing feeding problem and was excised under local anesthesia, with no recurrence even after 3 years.

Mentions: A 2-month-old female child was referred with the chief complaint of difficulty in feeding since a few days. On examination a 2 × 2 × 1 mm pedunculated growth was observed arising from the left side of maxilla in the canine region. The lesion was pink in color, similar to that of the surrounding mucosa, surface was smooth without any ulcerations and was firm in consistency. The patient was uncomfortable because of this small growth which was possibly hindering proper suction during breast feeding.[Figure 1]. Surgical excision of the growth was performed under local anesthesia. There was minimal bleeding during the procedure and the infant was comfortable with breast feeding from the very next day. The gingival mass was fixed in formalin and sent for histopathological examination.
