Bottom Line: Ulcerations of the margin are occasionally seen.It normally presents as a purplish-red nodule consisting of multinucleated giant cells in the background of mononuclear stromal cells and extravasated red blood cells.This case report describes the unusual appearance of a PGCG extending from left maxillary interdental gingiva to palatal area in 32-year-old female patient.

ABSTRACT
Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is an infrequent exophytic lesion of the oral cavity, also known as giant cell epulis, osteoclastoma, giant cell reparative granuloma, or giant cell hyperplasia. Lesions vary in appearance from smooth, regularly outlined masses to irregularly shaped, multilobulated protuberances with surface indentations. Ulcerations of the margin are occasionally seen. The lesions are painless, vary in size, and may cover several teeth. It normally presents as a purplish-red nodule consisting of multinucleated giant cells in the background of mononuclear stromal cells and extravasated red blood cells. This case report describes the unusual appearance of a PGCG extending from left maxillary interdental gingiva to palatal area in 32-year-old female patient.

Figure 10: (a) Postexcision after laser cauterization (buccal view); (b) postexcision after laser cauterization (palatal view)

Mentions: Due to likelihood of recurrence, a wide excision of the lesion was performed to minimize the chance of further recurrence. Subgingival band of calculus was observed with second premolar region after excision of the lesion [Figure 9]. High power diode laser of wavelength 810 nm with a treated tip in continuous mode at 0.6–1 W was used to cauterize the bleeding tissue. To extend the periphery of excision treated tip in continuous mode at 1.2–1.5 W was used [Figure 10a and b]. The excised specimen was embedded in 10% formalin and sent to the Department of Oral Pathology. The histology of the excised lesion re-confirmed the diagnosis of PGCG.
