Abstract

Exophytic gingival lesions represent some of the more frequently encountered lesions in the oral cavity. Some of these lesions are reactive in nature. Pyogenic granuloma is a relatively common benign mucocutaneous lesion occurring intra orally or extra orally. The exact etiopathogenesis remains unknown, although contributory factors include trauma, inflammation and infectious agents. Intraoral lesions are sometimes associated with pregnancy. Typically, pyogenic granuloma presents as an exuberant, red painless mass that easily bleeds, ulcerates and grows rapidly and is frequently seen on the gingiva. Treatment is surgical excision to exclude angiomatous proliferation. The condition is frequently associated with recurrence, and has more predilections towards females. Here by, presenting a case of pyogenic granuloma in a 40 years old male patient.
