Angiomatous granuloma also called as pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a benign soft-tissue tumor of the skin and mucous membrane arising in response to various stimuli such as local irritation, traumatic injury, or hormonal factors. PGs show a striking predilection for the gingiva. Extragingivally, it can be seen in areas of frequent trauma. It predominantly occurs in the second decade of life and is more common in females than males due to vascular effects of female hormones; here, we present a unique case in a 4-year-old female patient with a gingival growth mimicking a verrucous hyperplasia which is very rare in that age.
