Viresh Arora, Bhushan Kathuria, SPS Yadav, Sharad Hernot

Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a kind of reactive inflammatory hyperplasia seen in the oral cavity. Gingiva is the most common site of involvement (75 %), other extra-gingival sites involved are lips, tongue and buccal mucosa. It is predominantly seen in females in second decade of life with male to female predilection of 11.5, possibly because of the vascular effects of female hormones. Here we report a case of pyogenic granuloma of hard palate in 4 year female an unusual age and site of presentation which was initially considered as a case of papilloma of hard palate but later on confirmed as pyogenic granuloma after surgical excision and histopathological examination.
