This case report describes a 14-year-old female referred to Pediatric Dentistry for evaluation and treatment of cyclosporine-induced gingival hyperplasia. Examination of the anterior maxillary area showed a red, vascular, exophytic, soft-tissue mass which had been excised a few months earlier without a histopathologic examination being done. The mass did not appear consistent with gingival overgrowth induced by long-term use of medication, and thus an excisional biopsy was performed, which diagnosed the lesion as a pyogenic granuloma. A review of the literature and management recommendations are discussed.
