Özet

Congenital gingival granular cell tumours; (CGCT) are rare and always benign intraoral tumours originating from the alveolar ridge. They are also known as congenital epulis, congenital myobtastoma or Neumann's tumour. They are typically seen as a mass protruding out of a newborn child's mouth. In general., CGCT occurs as a solitary tumour. The main differential diagnosis is epignathus (oral teratoma).
