GONZALEZ FABIAN, Licet et al. Tumor of granular cells of esophagus. Rev cubana med [online]. 2010, vol.49, n.1, pp. 114-120. ISSN 1561-302X.

Granular cells tumors are rare and asymptomatic lesions and by general, it is an incidental finding en high or low endoscopy. They were described for the first time by Abrikossoff in 1926. The more frequent locations are the buccal mucosa, dermis and subcutaneous cellular tissue, most of these tumors has a benign origin. This is the case of a woman aged 44 with a pyrosis history from a year ago; by high endoscopy it is noted a 8mm lesion distal to esophagus and confirmed by histological study of granular cells tumor. Elective treatment of this lesion is the endoscopic polypectomy. Despite that the malign potential is low; we suggested a close clinical and endoscopic follow-up.

Palabras clave : Granular cells tumor; endoscopy; pyrosis; endoscopy polypectomy.
