Abstract

BRAMBILLA, Eduardo et al. Granular cell tumor of colon: a case report. J. Coloproctol. (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.2, pp.193-195. ISSN 2237-9363.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S2237-93632012000200017.

Granular cell tumor rarely affects the gastrointestinal tract. The symptoms are often unspecific and the diagnosis is reached accidentally by colonoscopy. We report the case of a 42-year-old patient diagnosed with granular cell carcinoma of the colon based on an incidental finding in colonoscopy, who was treated successfully by endoscopic excision of the tumor.

Keywords : colon; colonoscopy; granular cell tumor; endoscopy.
