We present two cases of congenital epulis in female newborns. Congenital epulis is a very rare lesion of uncertain histogenesis. The present lesions were located on the gingiva of the anterior alveolar ridge of the maxilla and the mandible, respectively. Both tumors consisted mainly of large eosinophilic granular cells arranged in solid nests. The neoplastic granular cells showed positive reactions for neuron specific enolase and vimentin in their cytoplasms, while they were entirely negative for other antibodies used in this study.
Key Words: Congenital epulis; Granular cells
