Granular cell tumors are uncommon in the gastrointestinal tract. They are often found incidentally during colonoscopic examination performed for other reasons as they are frequently asymptomatic and benign. They usually present as submucosal lesions that can be endoscopically resected. The final diagnosis depends on histopathological findings. We present the case of a 47-year-old man that underwent an endoscopic resection of several polyps at the time of colonoscopy with nonspecific complaints and family history of colorectal carcinoma.
