Abstract

Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a rare tumor that originates from the Schwann cells in the skin, soft tissues, and internal organs. Usually, GCTs are clinically benign, although malignant and multifocal forms are very rarely known to occur. Cases of GCT of the perianus are rare, and thus far, no study has reported synchronous GCTs of the perianus and the chest wall. We report a case of a 31-year-old woman with synchronous GCTs of the perianus and the chest wall to have a mind of consideration of the possibility of GCT in the differential diagnosis of perianal tumor.
