Abstract Pyogenic granuloma is a primarily reactive hyperplasia which appears in the oral cavity as an overgrowth of tissue due to physical trauma or hormonal factors & irritation. Pyogenic granuloma is a non specific gingival overgrowth seen as a response to underlying irritating factors.The growth is mainly seen in young but it may occur in any age group especially in individuals with poor oral hygiene. Females are far more susceptible than males because of the hormonal changes that occur in women during pregnancy, puberty and menopause. The peak prevalence is in teenagers and young adults, the treatment is excision of the lesion in toto. Keywords: Granuloma, Gravidarum, Hamartoma, Pyogenic Granuloma, Reactive hyperplasia, Traum
