Hyperplastic lesion of the gingiva in an 8-year-old male with pyogenic granuloma: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Fulden Şenyurt Tazegül and Ebru Hazar Bodrumlu
ABSTRACT:Pyogenic granuloma (PG), which is a tumor-like growth, is a reactive hyperplasia of connective tissue in response to irritation. The gingiva is the area that is most often affected. It commonly originates in response to various stimuli, such as traumatic injury, low-grade local irritants, hormonal factors, or some types of drugs. Histologically, the surface epithelium may be intact, may show foci of ulceration, or may exhibit hyperkeratosis. In general, PG is seen in both sexes in the second and third decades of life. This article presents a rare case study of an 8-year-old male patient with PG that was managed by surgical intervention.
