Özet

Congenital granular cell tumor, also known as congenital epulis, is a very rare lesion seen in newborns. The typical presentation is a solitary nodule occurring on the gingiva of the anterior alveolar ridge of either jaw. Multiple-site involvement is seen very seldom but has been noted on the same or different alveolar ridges. However, tongue involvement is exceptional, and there have been only three cases reported involving both the alveolus and the tongue. A female newborn with multiple congenital epulis on the mandibular alveolar ridge and tongue is presented, and her preferred treatment and histopathological diagnosis are discussed.
