Congenital granular cell epulis is a very rare tumor first described by Neumann in 1871. It is of mesenchymal origin with the female predilection in the ratio of 8:1. The lesion appears as a large protuberant mass and is commonly associated with obstruction causing difficulty in feeding and deglutition. We report a case of a newborn female who had feeding difficulty because of a protuberant mass arising from the oral cavity. The mass was surgically excised under general anesthesia and was histopathologically proven as congenital granular cell epulis. The follow-up for 3 months showed no recurrence. There are reported complications prenatally and postnatally. Hence, the treatment should be initiated early. The treatment of choice is complete surgical excision and no recurrence has been reported.
