Oikarinen et al in 1989 reported a syndrome associated with generalized gingival fibromatosis and growth hormone deficiency. This is a case report of a 15-year-old female patient who presented to the Government Dental College, Chennai with generalized gingival fibromatosis and growth hormone deficiency. Interestingly, the histopathology of the excised gingival overgrowth showed dense collagenous connective tissue in which were strewn calcified structures that resembled cementum. This syndrome is being reported for the second time after its first case report in 1989 by Oikarinen et al. We are herewith reporting this case for its rarity with a brief review of literature of syndromes associated with generalized gingival fibromatosis.
