Congenital epulis (CE) is an uncommon granular cell lesion of unknown pathogenesis and uncertain histogenesis that presents at birth. It is a benign hamartoma that may interfere with feeding and respiration. The treatment of CE is by simple excision. In the 136 years since CE was first described, more than 200 cases of CE have been reported in the literature.
