Unilateral Gingival Enlargement - An Unusual Case Report

MotazAtia, Yosra Ali, YasirYousif

An unusual case of a 9 years old female patient presented to the department of Peadodontics in National Ribat University/ Khartom-Sudan, with chief complaint of moderate, unilateral gingival enlargement confined to the right side of oral cavity. The inflamed edematous enlarged gingiva covered more than 2/3 of the crown surfaces. The diagnosis of unusual non-specific gingival hyperplasia was made, based on clinical and histological features. Surgical excision and conventional periodontal therapy reduced the size of enlargement. This enlargement was considered due to exaggerated gingival response to local irritation from plaque and calculus, leading to overgrowth of periodontopathic bacteria. A careful recording of the history and results of clinical examination and investigations were noted to achieve diagnosis.
