Resumen

BACKGROUND: The newborn congenital epulis or granular cell tumor is a benign tumor that appears in the oral cavity of newborns with more frequency in the gingiva of the alveolar crest of the maxilla at the level of the incisive and canine area, predominantly in the female sex. It is of diagnostic importance since it can interfere with feeding, swallowing and via area, putting the health of the newborn at risk. It usually involutes spontaneously and in case of surgical treatment there are no reports of recurrence. The aim of this work was to describe the evolution according to the approach of this patient with congenital newborn epulis.

CASE REPORT: The case of a patient of the newborn congenital epulis and its follow-up for 6 years is reviewed.
