PMID: 20162123

The peripheral giant cell granuloma is a benign reactive exophytic lesion of unknown etiology occurring on the gingiva and alveolar ridge. Different local causal factors have been associated with this type of lesion. Although peripheral giant cell granuloma is the most common giant cell lesion of the jaws, it is rarely seen in association with implants. This report discusses the etiology and management of a peripheral giant cell granuloma around dental implants in a 60-year-old woman. A new implant-supported prosthesis with adequate marginal adaptation between the restoration and abutments was made. There were no complications during 1 year of clinical and radiologic follow-up.
