Abstract

We report a case of granular-cell tumor (GCT) arising in the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall and describe its radiologic and histologic characteristics. The differential diagnosis of a mass in this site may include multiple benign and malignant stromal lesions. In this case, the presentation, location, and radiological features suggested a desmoid tumor (aggressive fibromatosis). Treatment of the mass involved surgical excision with negative margins, and histological analysis confirmed the presence of a benign GCT. We report a case of this rare, benign tumor to allow the radiologist and pathologist to consider this disease in the differential diagnosis when presented with similar cases.
