International Journal of Medical and Pharmaceutical Case Reports,
Gingival fibromatosis is a rare, benign, slowly growing heterogeneous group of disorders that develop local or diffuse enlargements of interdental papilla or attached gingiva and marginal gingiva. In advanced cases, the growth of the tissue may cover the occlusal surface of the teeth, thus causing functional, aesthetic, and periodontal problems, such as bone loss and bleeding, due to the accumulation of plaque and the presence of pseudo pockets. It affects both sexes equally. This condition is usually transmitted as a genetic syndrome and rarely, an isolated condition. Here, we discuss the case on gingival fibromatosis along with a brief description of some characters on clinical, etiological, genetic and histopathological aspects.
