Sudhir Varma, Salim Abufanas, Amani Osman, Maher Shayeb, Syed Kudarathulah


Abstract: PG (Pyogenic granuloma) represents as a isolated pedunculated or sessile growth that can mislead diagnosis of cases, and can also lead to exhausted treatment modalities. Refractory swellings in the oral cavity can lead to misinterpretation of simple cases and relaxed approach to complex cases. Proper medical history is paramount for successful treatment protocols. A 28 year old female patient was refered for a comprehensive gingival and periodontal evaluation. Patient had made number of visits to clinics in a period of 18 months for examining a growth which was bothering her and bled on the slightest touch. The patient was treated and put on a followup for a period of 12 months for possible recurrence. Management of such cases require proper history which includes personal history, habits, drug history and medical history. Any information which might seem less relevant will lead to a change in treatment plan. All data needs to be evaluated for proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
