Abstract


Granular cell tumor (GCT) of the breast is an uncommon and a benign tumor that can mimics carcinoma clinically as well as radiographically. The GCT is characterized by a proliferation of large cells with abundant eosinophilic granular cytoplasm of ubiquitar seat. We report a case of a granular cell tumor of axillary seat in a woman of 47 years. The diagnosis was confirmed at pathologic examination of percutaneous biopsy. The evolution of the granular cell tumor is often favorable. Surgery remains the treatment of choice. The diagnosis is exclusively pathological.

Author Keywords: Granular cell tumor, GCT, Breast, Benign tumor, pathologic examination.


Abstract: (french)


La tumeur à cellules granuleuses (TCG) est une tumeur rare et bénigne pouvant mimer cliniquement et radiologiquement un carcinome. Elle est caractérisée par une prolifération de grandes cellules aux cytoplasmes abondants granuleux éosinophiles de siège ubiquitaire.
Nous rapportons une observation d'une tumeur à cellules granuleuses de siège axillaire chez une femme de 47 ans. Le diagnostic a été confirmé à l'examen anatomopathologique de la biopsie percutanée. L'évolution de la tumeur à cellules granuleuses est souvent favorable. La chirurgie reste le traitement de choix. Le diagnostic positif est exclusivement anatomopathologique.
