Peripheral Giant Cell Granuloma or the so called “Giant Cell Epulis” is the most common oral giant cell lesion. It is described as non-neoplastic, hyperplastic lesion occurring exclusively on gingival/alveolar crest that appears as a overgrowth of tissues, following trauma or irritation arising from periosteum or periodontal membrane. It can be sessile or pedunculated with size usually less than 2cm. Although being uncommon, this lesion carries a lot of uncertainity in terms of its etiology, growth potential, biological behavior (recurrence), histogenesis of its cells and its treatment. We hereby report a case of a 49-year old male patient, with peripheral giant cell granuloma in mandibular posterior region, who was successfully treated and is on regular follow up since 6 months.
