RODRIGUEZ TAMAYO, Sara Milagros; VAZQUEZ ISLA, David; PEREZ VERA, Leanet  y  REYNA LEYVA, Adis Mirtha. Presentation of a Patient with Peripheral Giant Cell Granuloma. ccm [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.378-384. ISSN 1560-4381.

A female patient of 37 years old with no history of general interest, nail biting habit from childhood, which had increased volume within the interdental papilla between lateral incisor and maxillary right canine about two years of evolution was presented, which caused discomfort and bleeding during dentogingival brushing. The lesion appeared with appearance of a tooth, pink color to red, smooth, sessile base, not painful on palpation, exceeded the incisal margin, without interfering with the occlusion and surpassing the broad lingual hall of the contiguous teeth in approximately two millimeters. The radiographic exam evidenced superficial reabsorption of the crest of the interdental partition between both teeth and bone-like spacing of the trabeculate. The lesion was eliminated by surgical excision. The histologic test confirmed the presence of peripheral giant cell granuloma completely eliminated. A satisfactory post-surgical evolution was observed.

Palabras clave : peripheral giant cell granuloma; hyperplasia; gingival diseases.
