Granular cell tumours are benign tumours that are thought to originate from the Schwann cells. They tend to occur in middle aged adults and can be found anywhere in the body in subcutaneous as well as dermis tissue [1]. Most of them are benign with less than 2% being malignant or atypical. Atypical features are associated with increased morbidity and have a poor prognosis if they become metastatic [2]. They also have a high recurrence rate.
