Congenital epulis is a rare benign tumor that most often presents on the maxillary or mandibular alveolar ridges. Epulis is a nonspecific term that refers to masses of the gingiva, so some authors have advocated the use of the term gingival granular cell tumor of the newborn rather than congenital epulis.1 The GGCTN has a female predilection, affecting girls up to 10 times more often than boys.2
