Mahendra Patait, Urvashi Nikate, Shrinivas Ambarkar, Shital Nikam

Oral granuloma pyogenicum or pyogenic granuloma is a relatively common mucocutaneous lesion seen in the oral cavity, as a response to some underlying irritating factor. Clinically oral pyogenic granuloma is seen as a smooth exophytic lesion with usually haemorrhagic base. It is not associated with pus as its name suggests and histologically it resembles an angiomatous lesion rather than a granulomatous lesion. It is known by a variety of names such as Crocker and Hartzell’s disease, Granuloma pediculatumbenignum, benign vascular tumor and during pregnancy as granuloma gravidarum. This tumor like growth is considered to be non‑neoplastic in nature and it presents itself in the oral cavity in various clinical and histological forms. This paper presents a case of pyogenic granuloma managed by surgical intervention.
