Abstract

Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a relatively Common reactive exophytic lesion of the oral cavity. The influence of hormones has been suggested as contributory factor in PGCG development and predominance of these lesions in young females as well as some previously reported pregnancy related cases support this belief. It has been observed that majority of lesions present in the 4th decade of life, when hormonal changes are more pronounced. Cailluette and Mattar in their study found that peripheral giant cell granuloma are under the influence of the ovarian hormones. However Chambers and Spector suggested peripheral giant cell granuloma to be enhanced by pregnancy rather than being pregnancy dependent. The responsiveness of gingiva to these hormones along with the immunosuppressive actions of the hormones contributes to the growth of the lesion. Clinically, PGCGs may present as polypoid or nodular lesions, predominantly bluish red with a smooth shiny or mamillated surface.

This poster will review the literature available on the association of Massive Peripheral Giant Cell Granuloma With Pregnancy with focus on possible causes of PGCG during pregnancy.
