Abstract

The congenital granular cell lesion most commonly occurs on the maxillary or mandibular alveolus of neonates.

Two additional cases occurring on the tongue are presented with a description of the clinical, histopathologic, and immunohistochemical features. The differential diagnosis is discussed, and the literature reviewed.
