There was no associated pain and bleeding noted. Hereditary gingival fibromatosis HGF is a benign, non-hemorrhagic, fibrous gingival overgrowth that can cover all or part of the teeth.

Mutation in SOS1, son-of-sevenless gene, is thought to be responsible for hereditary gingival fibromatosis. The blood group examination was also done owing to the need for blood transfusion which was deemed necessary for maxillary arch gingivectomy after complete clinical evaluation.

Hereditary gingival fibromatosis

The mandible was relatively thinner in angle region bilaterally. All the forms of HGF is not characterized histologically, especially some syndromic forms. It was suggested to the parents that surgery should be performed with nitrous oxide sedation and local anesthesia, opting for external bevel gingivectomy.

There was no associated lymphadenopathy noted. Familial gingival fibromatosis withunusual histologic findings. Routine blood investigations were gijgival and values were found within normal range although haemoglobin values was slightly below normal range 8. The symmetric type is most common type of gingival enlargement, however there may be combination of both types.

On the basis of clinical, radiological, and histopathological examination; a final diagnosis of HGF has been achieved.

Hereditary gingival fibromatosis: Characteristics and treatment approach

HGF may be associated with other clinical manifestations such as hypertrichosis,[ 15 ] growth retardation,[ 16 ] hypopigmentation, mental deficiency,[ 17 ] epilepsy,[ 18 ] splenomegaly,[ 11 ] optic and auditory defects, cartilage and nail defects gereditary dentigerous cysts.

The symmetric form, which is the most common type of disorder, results in uniform enlargement of the gingiva that is firm, dense, resilient, insensitive fibrous tissue that covers the alveolar ridges and extends over the teeth resulting in extensive pseudo pockets. In the first case, internal bevel gingivectomy made it possible to view the bone crest and its relationship with the cemento-enamel line.
