Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a non-neoplastic lesion representing a local hyperplastic reaction to injury or inflammation. Lesions vary in appearance from smooth, regularly outlined masses to irregularly shaped, multilobulated protuberances with surface indentations. Ulcerations of the margin is occasionally seen. The lesions are painless, vary in size, and may cover several teeth. This article reports a case of PGCG arising at the mandibular anterior region in a 45-year-old man. The biopsy specimen revealed features consistent with PGCG. The clinical follow-up revealed uneventful soft tissue healing.
