PERIPHERAL GIANT CELL GRANULOMA: CLINICAL FEATURES, HISTOLOGY AND TREATMENT
Author: Sanketh DS, MDS
INTRODUCTION AND ETIOLOGY
Peripheral giant cell granuloma is a tumor like growth occurring relatively commonly in the oral cavity that represents a reactive process rather than a neoplasm. The cause for this lesion appears to be local irritating factors like dental plaque, calculus, ill-fitting prostheses, poorly made dental restorations and periodontal disease and is believed to arise from the periodontal ligament or the mucoperiosteum. Some pathologists regard this lesion to be the soft tissue counterpart of central giant cell granuloma.
