    We present a case of an intramuscular granular cell tumor in the thigh manifesting a ‘stripe sign’ on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This MR finding may correspond with the entrapped muscle fibers within the tumor, which demonstrated parallel arrangement on histopathologic examination. In addition, other disease entities characterized by the presence of this sign such as proliferative myositis, heterotopic ossification, and muscular sarcoidosis will be reviewed.
