Granular cell tumour

Lesions similar to those in peripheral soft tissues are occasionally encountered in the stomach, where they principally occur as small submucous nodules and less commonly as intramural or sub-serous masses. These lesions occur predominantly in middle age, and show a strong predilection for Blacks. Associated gastric ulcer symptoms are common. See chapter on mesenchymal tumours of the oesophagus for pathological features {862}.
