Abstract

The oral pyogenic granuloma is a commonly occurring tumor like reactive lesion that occurs as a response to different stimuli such as hormonal imbalances, low grade chronic irritation, trauma or certain type of drugs and oral contraceptives. It is frequently seen in the gingiva, and also lips, tongue and buccal mucosa are the other commonest sites. The present case reports a localized inflammatory hyperplasia of the maxillary gingiva of a 20-year-old male patient which was interfering with normal eating and brushing.
