Abstract

Abrikossoff tumors, also known as granular cell tumors, are rare and often benign soft tissue neoplasms of Schwann cell origin. The vast majority of cases are reported in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Only 0.001% of Abrikossoff tumors are estimated to occur in the esophagus. We report a rare case of Abrikossoff tumor of the esophagus in a patient who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy for abdominal pain and nausea.

Keywords: abrikossoff tumor; esophagogastroduodenoscopy (egd); esophagus; granular cell tumor.
