Pyogenic granuloma is a common inflammatory hyperplasia of the oral cavity traditionally considered to be non neoplastic in nature. Its most common intraoral location is the gingiva and it is classically thought to arise due to either chronic irritation or hormonal influences. Extragingival sites are very rarely reported for this lesion and may tend to present a diagnostic dilemma to the clinician. Here we report one such case of pyogenic granuloma of the buccal mucosa in a 12 year old female child which was atypical in presentation and was treated by diode laser excision.
