A 18-year old woman with a granular cell tumor of the breast is described. The clinical and the ultrasonographic findings were in favour of fibroadenoma located in the upper outer quadrant of the left breast. The fine needle aspiration cytology did not provide any diagnostic information. Excisional biopsy was performed for definitive diagnosis and a granular cell tumor of the breast was demonstrated histopathologically. We reviewed the literature and we found that our present case is rare. The granular cell tumors of the breast are benign tumors and there is not association with carcinoma.
