Granular cell tumors, also called Abrikossoff tumors, are benign, slowly growing neoplasms. Theymay occur anywhere in the body, but head and neck accounts to 45% - 65% of these cases. Themost common site is the tongue. Larynx is relatively an uncommon location for these tumours,accounting for approximately three to 10 per cent of the reported cases. Laryngeal granular celltumour is extremely rare accounting for only 19 reported cases under the age of 17 years. As manyas 10% of patients experience multifocal synchronous or metachronous tumors.
