UNUSUAL PRESENTATION OF PERIPHERAL GIANT CELL GRANULOMA IN A PATIENT WITH RAPIDLY PROGRESSING PERIODONTITIS - A CASE REPORT

  • Dr Vaneet Kaur Sandhu

Abstract

Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a localised, benign, sometimes aggressive hyperplastic reactive lesion of oral cavity with an unclear etiology occurring in the relation to gingival and alveolar mucosa. Rapidly Progressing Periodontitis (RPP) usually presents at second to fourth decade of age with a female predilection. Local irritation as plaque and calculus play a vital role. We present here a case and management of a young female suffering from RPP with complete destruction of the alveolar bone and a huge PGCG in left mandibular body region.

Key words:  Morphology of peripheral giant cell granuloma, periodontitis
