Abstract

Pyogenic granuloma is one of the inflammatory hyperplasia in the oral cavity. This term is a misnomer because the lesion is unrelated to infection and in reality arises in response to various stimuli such as low-grade local irritation, traumatic injury or hormonal factors. It predominantly occurs in the second decade of life in young females, possibly because of the vascular effects of female hormones. Pyogenic granuloma consists of capillary proliferations, venules and fibromyxoid stroma. The development occurs in three stages and bleeding is a common symptoms. Clinically oral pyogenic granuloma is a smooth or lobulated Exophytic lesion manifesting as small, red erythematous papules on a pedunculated or sometimes sessile base, which is usually hemorrhagic. Treatment plan includes several methods such as surgical intervention or laser treatment, but also more conservative approaches, including the application of topical systemic agents. In our case we managed the case with electro cauterization to see the efficacy of that treatment and post-operative recurrence.
