ABSTRACTThe granulosa cell tumor constitutes a rare disease that predominates in the tongue and has a low rate of recurrence, simply by surgical removal. The objective is to characterize a case of granulosa cells bifocal tumor in the oral mucosa with some clinical and histopathologic features to this injury. A 60-year-old patient presented with two small nodules in the smooth surface, consistency and slightly yellowish fibroelastic. These lesions were removed by excisional biopsy. From the microscopic point of view, it was demonstrated that there was a neoplasia with granule cells in some areas and the diagnosis was granular cell tumor. The definitive diagnosis of the lesion is obtained by histopathology, as the clinical appearance of the lesion is nonspecific, so it is very important to perform the excisional biopsy. The patient remains under follow-up for six months and shows no recurrence.
