[Article in Spanish]


Abrikossoff's tumor or granular cell tumor is an infrequent benign neoplasm, accurately described by Abrikossoff in 1926. We report the case of a young man, 19-year-old, affected with an Abrikossoff's tumor, sitting on the soft palate. After the timely perusal of the subject, we emphasize the peculiarity of the palatine localisation as well the importance of anatomical pathology in order to get a correct diagnosis of these neoformations of soft's parts.
