Abstract

Granular cell tumors of the ulnar nerve are extremely rare, with only two cases previously reported in the English literature. The author presents a case of granular cell tumor of the ulnar nerve, in which the tumor was resected and the nerve was repaired with a nerve graft. The histopathological characteristics, imaging findings, and clinical data regarding these tumors are reviewed, and based on all the available evidence, a new treatment paradigm is proposed, which differs from that used in the earlier reported cases and takes into account the reported rate of tumor recurrence after incomplete resection.
