Granular cell tumor is an uncommon neoplasm that can occur everywhere in the human body. Granular cell tumor of the cervical esophagus is rare. Histopathologically, granular cell tumor consists of large polygonal cells with small dark nuclei and abundant, fine, granular eosinophilic cytoplasm that show positive immunohistochemical staining using S-100 protein. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice for granular cell tumor. Recurrence is rare, but inadequate resection of granular cell tumor may cause local recurrence. We have experienced one case of granular cell tumor of the cervical esophagus that was misdiagnosed with parathyroid tumor. Therefore, we report it with the literature review.
