Gingival Epulis, An Enigma for Clinical Diagnosis: A Case Report
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. Clinical diagnosis of these presentations is highly complex as it could be an array of enlargements related to tumors, cysts and otherwise growth related to specific and non specific origin. 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.
