Abstract

A 13-year-old female patient presented with a 20×15-mm pedunculated, elastic hard cauliflower-shaped lesion with a healthy color and partial erosion attached to the maxillary gingiva in the right maxillary first molar region. The lesion gradually grew over a year. Excisional biopsy was performed and histopathological analysis indicated epulis osteoplastica.
