The peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a relatively common benign reactive lesion of the oral cavity, originating from the periosteum or the periodontal ligament. It occurs as a result of local trauma or chronic irritation. This article presents a case of peripheral giant cell granuloma with review of literature.

A 9 year old girl reported with a nodular lesion in the maxillary right central incisor region of two months duration. The lesion was excised and sent for histopathologic examination. The lesion was diagnosed as PGCG. The usual line of treatment for PGCG is local excision down to the bony base along with elimination of the local etiologic factors. The clinical one year follow up revealed there was no uneventful soft tissue healing or recurrence.
