Abstract: Granular cell tumor is an uncommon benign tumor occurring on the skin as a single nodule. Multiple tumors are very rare, particularly in children. We describe a child with multiple granular cell tumors on the skin in association with growth hormone deficiency. The occurrence of multiple granular cell tumors in association with other clinical manifestations in childhood is discussed.
