Abstract.

Granular cell tumor (GCT), or granular cell myoblastmoma, is a relatively uncmomon lesion of the soft tissues. The tumor is thought to derive frmom a Schwann cell or frmom a perineural undifferentiated mesenchymal cell. GCT can occur in any organ, but the parotid gland is very unusual. A case of GCT of the parotid gland in a 30-year-old wmoman is described.
