Three black women were found to have granular-cell tumors on the vulva; in one, there were several additionally in other cutaneous sites. Although this benign neoplasm is uncommon on the vulva, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of nodular lesions on the vulva. Granular-cell tumors in multiplicity occur frequently and are not a sign of metastatic disease. This lesion has predilection for blacks. Pseudocarcinomatous hyperplasia occurs typically in overlying squamous epithelium and may be misinterpreted as squamous-cell carcinoma.
