A 47-year-old female presented with dysuria and vague discomfort in the suprapubic region that had lasted for the previous 3 months. On evaluation, ultrasonography kidney-ureter-bladder (KUB) and computerized tomographic scan KUB revealed a nodular growth noted in the urinary bladder measuring 2 cm × 2 cm. Urine cytology was negative for malignant cells. Cystoscopy showed a nodular tumor approximately 2 cm × 2 cm in diameter that was located supratrigonal and extended to the posterior wall of the bladder. The patient underwent transurethral resection of the tumor. Histological examination and immunohistochemical staining showed a granular cell tumor (GCT). There were no features suggesting a malignant phenotype. On follow-up, the patient has remained free of bladder recurrence. We herein report this rare case of a GCT of the urinary bladder and review the literature.
