Question:

The most appropriate treatment for Granular Cell Tumor is: (Check all that apply)
1. Conservative Management
2. Nerve Preserving Excision of tumor
3. Macroscopic excision and Nerve Grafting
4. Radiotherapy
5. Combination of Cyclophosphamide and 5FluoroUracil (5FU)





Answer:

The correct answers for the question "The most appropriate treatment for Granular Cell Tumor is: (Check all that apply)" are:

2. Nerve Preserving Excision of tumor

3. Macroscopic excision and Nerve Grafting



Explanation
A: Conservative Management is not appropriate in GrCT [It is believed that macroscopic excision and nerve grafting is most appropriate treatment. Our case received nerve preserving tumor excision and no grafting was needed. The patient showed motor functional improvement during short-term follow-up.]

B: Nerve preserving excision of tumor may be done in GrCT with good results, as in this case. [it is believed that macroscopic excision and nerve grafting is most appropriate treatment (7). Our case received nerve preserving tumor excision and no grafting was needed. The patient showed motor functional improvement during short-term follow-up.]

C: Macroscopic excision and Nerve Grafting is reported to be appropriate treatment modality in GrCT [It is believed that macroscopic excision and nerve grafting is most appropriate treatment (7). Our case received nerve preserving tumor excision and no grafting was needed. The patient showed motor functional improvement during short-term follow-up.]

D: Radiotherapy is not given in GrCT [it is believed that macroscopic excision and nerve grafting is most appropriate treatment (7). Our case received nerve preserving tumor excision and no grafting was needed. The patient showed motor functional improvement during short-term follow-up.]

E: There is no role of chemotherapy in GrCT [it is believed that macroscopic excision and nerve grafting is most appropriate treatment (7). Our case received nerve preserving tumor excision and no grafting was needed. The patient showed motor functional improvement during short-term follow-up.]

Abstract
The authors report an unusual case of ulnar neuropathy caused by granular cell tumor. The report describes the anatomic 3 Tesla MR Neurography and functional diffusion tensor findings of the case, which was subsequently confirmed on surgical excision and histopathology.
