Abstract: The word epulis refers to a localized growth or enlargement of the gingiva, which could be a associated development either of a systemic, enviormental or local background.

Following is a case report of a patient who presented to our clinic with a growth present in relation to upper right maxillary premolar region, diagnosis of the case was difficult, biopsy was done and treatment instituted.
