Management of Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma in Pregnancy with Negative CRP: A Case Report

Dr. Nikhil Purohit | Dr. Nitin Jaggi | Dr. Ashish Singh | Dr. Geetu Jadon

Abstract: Since the late 1940s, ossifying fibromas are regularly documented in the literature. Often a gingival fibroma, peripheral ossifying fibroma exhibits areas of the ossification. It is a non - cancerous gingival enlargement. According to clinical and histological similarities, certain POFs are hypothesised to first develop as a pyogenic granuloma that goes through fibrous maturation and eventually calcifies. It has been suggested that POF, as opposed to an irritating fibroma or a growing type pyogenic granuloma, is a unique clinical entity. In this case study, a pregnant woman who was 22 years old and had a negative c - reactive protein test appeared with a gingival growth in the upper left front area of her mouth.
