Abstract


Granular cell tumor (GCT) of the breast is an unusual neoplasm, tipicallybenign, it represents between 5-6% of all GCT cases. These tumors aremore common in middle-aged premenopausal women with a greater predilection African American race [1]. Nevertheless, there are also cases described in men [2-4]. Almost all of them are favorable, the malignant casesare uncommon (only 1-3%). Sometimes it could be clinically and radiologically confused with a malignant breast tumor; so it's very importantto make a differential diagnosis. The choice therapy is an extensive localextirpation with free margins [5], without the need for adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Our case is a 61-year-old woman with a GCT, andthree years ago a history of breast carcinoma in the same breast.
