Giant cell fibroma of the buccal mucosa- a case report
Keywords:giant cell fibroma, hyperpalstic lesion, reactive lesion
Giant cell fibroma is a non neoplastic reactive lesion occurring in the oral cavity. The lesion is so named because of the presence of typically large stellate shaped multinucleated giant cell. Although the lesion is benign in nature, continuous trauma and irritation can make it grow large. In such circumstances biopsy may become mandatory.
