Pyogenic granuloma is a benign, localized mass of exuberant granulation tissue produced in response to various stimuli. It is inflammatory hyperplasia of oral cavity commonly seen on gingival and rarely on other parts of oral cavity such as lips, tongue, palate, and buccal mucosa. It is seen predominantly in second to third decade of life in young females. Clinically manifesting as a small red erythematous exophytic lesion must be biopsied to rule out other serious conditions. This article aims to present a case of extragingival pyogenic granuloma on buccal mucosa in a 40-year-old female patient which is comparatively a rare location.
