A malignant granular cell myoblastoma (third group of Abrikossoff) is reported arising from the region of the right hip. It recurred and metastasized following inadequate excision and caused death approximately five years after diagnosis. This is the second example of this type of tumor metastasizing and is the first example of one in this location. It is recommended that a somewhat more cautious clinical attitude be entertained when a diagnosis of granular cell myoblastoma is made. The typical cellular morphology of the malignant variant has been detailed. If any doubt exists as to its benign character, then radical rather than conservative therapy should be instituted. Radiotherapy is not indicated.
