An Update on Cutaneous Granular Cell tumours for Dermatologists and Dermatopathologists.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Department of Cellular Pathology, St. George's Hospital, London, UK.

Granular cell tumours are rare soft tissue neoplasms which occur at a wide variety of sites and commonly involve the skin. Distinction between benign and malignant granular cell tumours is important because benign tumours are commonly cured by complete excision and malignant tumours commonly recur and cause fatal metastatic disease. Communication between the dermatologist and pathologist is also important, as the pathologist may provide false reassurance by evaluating a benign appearing part of a clinically malignant tumour.
