Abstract

Objective: We report a case of a 40-year-old female with gingival overgrowth in the right maxillary anterior region which has been excised at a peripheral hospital that caused displacement, mobility of associated teeth and lip incompetency.


Case description: A case of recurrent gingival overgrowth in the right maxillary anterior region in a 40-year-old female with associated teeth displacement and mobility and lip incompetency. There was a radiologic evidence of bone loss. Excisional biopsy was carried out and the histologic diagnosis was Capillary Hemangioma.


Conclusion: Capillary Hemangioma should be considered as one of the differential diagnosis in cases of gingival overgrowth of maxillary anterior region, which mimics pyogenic granuloma
