Abstract

Granuloma pyogenicum is the second most common oral lesion, which does not produce pus. This is a smooth, painless, non neoplastic and lobulated or cauliflower like growth of the connective tissue seen commonly on gingiva and in young females comparing to males. Pyogenic granuloma seems to contribute 19.76-25% of all reactive lesions. Pyogenic granuloma being benign in nature this may attain an alarming size causing pain and discomfort. Thus early intervention through reinforcement of adequate oral hygiene measures along with surgical excision down to the periosteum is necessary to minimize the recurrence.
