Abstract

Oral pyogenic granuloma is a hyperplastic inflammatory lesion commonly seen in females probably due to the vascular effects of hormones that occur during puberty, pregnancy and menopause, associated to local irritation or trauma. During pregnancy, such lesions are known as pregnancy tumor and tend to occur frequently during the second and third trimester. Clinically, they appear as a smooth or lobulated exophytic lesion on a pedunculated or sessile base, which is usually hemorrhagic. Lack of oral health awareness among pregnant patients results in occurrence of such oral lesions which poses a great challenge to the dentist and gynecologist. Here, we present an unusual case of large persistent oral pregnancy tumor with complete management post parturition.

Keywords: Estrogen, Gingiva, Plaque, Pyogenic granuloma.
