Abstract

Gingival enlargement occurs due to various reasons and in association with various syndromes. But gingival enlargement in association with generalized aggressive periodontitis is a rare finding. As both the clinical conditions are associated with genetic background, it is a matter of interest to search for the possibility of syndromic association of these two diseases. We are presenting a case of 18 year old female with nonsyndromic idiopathic gingival enlargement in association with generalized aggressive periodontitis. Treatment was done by internal bevel gingivectomy, open flap debridement and infrabony pocket elimination. There was no recurrence till 2 year postoperative period.

Keywords: Aggressive periodontitis, Fibromatosis, Gingival hyperplasia.
