peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a common benign hyperplastic and
reactive gingival lesion occurring mostly in adults. We report a case of a 10-year-old
boy presenting with a six-month history soft tissue mass of the left mandibular
gingiva associated with ulceration area. An excisional biopsy of the lesion
followed by histopathologic examination of the biopsy specimen revealed
distinctive features of peripheral giant cell granuloma. In
these case report after 12 months of follow up spontaenous eruptions of
permanent teeth were noticed.
Clinical, radiographical and histological characteristics are discussed and
recommendations regarding treatment.
