Medical Image:  We present the case of a 4-year-old boy, who, two months after suffering a growing gingiva in the buccal aspect of right decidous canine, developed a painless, exophytic swelling of approximately 1,5 cm, with non-bleeding on palpation (Figure 1). The lesion demons¬trated rapid, progressive and continuous growth. The X-ray study showed no signs of bone involvement. The lesion was excised under local anesthesia (Figure 2). The histological study confirmed the diagnosis of peripheral giant cell granuloma. The postoperative course was uneventful. Control examination after 2 months showed a remarkable healing (Figure 3).
