Arife KAPTAN [1] , Çiğdem ÇUKURCU [2] , Turan Emre KUZU [3]


The 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.
