Abstract

Pyogenic granuloma (PG) also known as “Lobular capillary hemangioma,” appears as an overgrowth of
tissue due to irritation, physical trauma, or hormonal changes in the oral cavity. this present study is on a
series of cases comprising of 49 cases of pyogenic granuloma is the first of its kind reported from Eastern
India. Even though patients usually do not report the hospital for pyogenic granuloma unless the lesion
is large and incapacitating, such number in four years is not very less. Therefore it may be deduced that
pyogenic granuloma is not rare in this part of India.
