SEVILLA-RIBOTA, Sergio et al. Endoscopic resection of rectal granular-cell tumor using elastic band ligation. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2016, vol.108, n.10, pp.677-680. ISSN 1130-0108.

Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a rare neoplasm that develops in the gut's submucosal layer. We report the case of a male with a history of surgically excised colon neoplasm where a rectal polyp was identified during a follow-up endoscopy. The lesion, eventually identified as a GCT, was endoscopically removed by band ligation-assisted mucosectomy. This may be the second report of a colorectal GCT successfully managed using band ligation, and the first one on a rectal GCT excised with this technique.

Keywords : Colonoscopy; Rectum; Granular cell tumor; Submucosal tumor of the colon; Endoscopic mucosal resection.
