Abstract

PERIPHERAL GIANT CELL GRANULOMA ??? A CASE REPORT

Parimala Tyagi, Ankur Jain, Sanjeev Tyagi

Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a non-neoplastic lesion representing a local hyperplastic reaction. It is a tumorlike pathologic condition arising on the buccal or lingual attached gingival or alveolar mucosa and the crest of the edentulous alveolar ridge, of uncertain etiology; it is probably a reactive lesion caused by chronic local irritants or trauma rather than a true neoplasm. PGCG is thought to originate from elements of the periodontal ligament or from the periosteum. Clinically, it appears as a sessile or broadly pedunculated, bluish to purple-red, fleshy or firm swelling with a frequently ulcerated surface. It may be difficult to distinguish PGCG from pyogenic granuloma and peripheral odontogenic tumors. The clinical appearance of all these lesions is similar, the definitive diagnosis with histological examination is mandatory. Treatment of choice is surgical excision with total removal of the base of the lesion This case aims to present a case of PGCG in 11 year old girl in which surgical resection of the lesion was done to restore functions and esthetics.
