Abstract: Aim: This article describes a peripheral oral giant cell granuloma (POGCG) in a pediatric patient and its surgical management and histological characteristics. Background: Peripheral oral giant cell granuloma (POGCG) is a hyperplastic reactive lesion formed by a proliferation of mononuclear cells and osteoclast-type giant cells in vascular tissue, occasionally with bone formation. Generally found in women and adults, POGCG has rarely been described in children. Case description: An 8-year-old girl was consulted for an exophytic lesion in the anterior area of the upper jaw, which had increased in volume in the preceding weeks. An excisional biopsy of the tumor was performed with an electrosurgical pencil. The pathological diagnosis was POGCG. Conclusion: Excision followed by additional therapy, such as scaling and curettage, should be the first option in the treatment of POGCG. Clinical significance: Early detection of these lesions involving the periodontium is important in order to reduce bone loss and avoid pathological dental migration.
