A 40-year-old woman was admitted with a history of intermittent abdominal pain at the right lower quadrant area. Colonoscopy showed a 1.5⁓1.5 cm sized polypoid lesion that had yellowish surface, central depression, and normal mucosal covering. The tumor was removed by endoscopic tumorectomy following injection of hypertonic saline solution with epinephrine for lifting the lesion. The tumor consisted of granular tumor cells which were positive for S-100 protein, NSE, and PAS stain. We report a case of granular cell tumor of the ascending colon with a review of the literature.
