SUMMARY : Gingival enlargement is diverse group of chaos. The situation manifests itself by progressive enlargements of gingival tissue. This gingival enlargement is maily caused by an increase in the sub mucosal connective tissue element. This type of enlargement is a proliferative fibrous lesion. This proliferative lesion causes esthetics and functional problems. The condition is atypical and inherited. The condition mostly involves keratinized gingiva .The nature of condition is slowly progressive, not hemorrhagic. The involvement is fibrous in nature. The case reported here addresses a 13 year old male. The patient presented with diffused gingival enlargement involving…show more content… Pain and swelling were gradual in onset.
