AUTHOR(S): Nandini Bhardwaj, Nitish Bhat, Kalpna Thakur and Alisha Dogra
ABSTRACT:A distinctive oral fibrous proliferation approximating only 2-5% of all benign gingival overgrowths is a unique lesion requiring adequate clinical diagnosis. With no subtle association with chronic irritation, this oral tumor is a diverse lesion. Giant cell fibroma (GCF) requires histopathological examination for its final diagnosis as clinic pathologic features are not sufficient to assess and confirm the lesion. Occurring most commonly during the first three decades of life this asymptomatic pedunculated or sessile lump clinically resembles fibroma and papilloma with no gender predilection. In this paper, we present a unique case of Giant cell fibroma (GCF) in a 4-year-old child.
