Abstract


Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH), commonly described in the literature as "Pyogenic granuloma" is a reactive tumor-like lesion commonly affecting the oral cavity closely related to trauma, chronic irritation and hormonal changes. Clinically, the lesion ap- pears as a smooth, lobulated, exophytic mass, exhibiting pink to reddish-purple in color and usually easy bleeding. The size of lesion varies from millimeters to centimeters, rarely exceeding 2 - 2.5 cm. We report a clinical case of lobular capillary hemangioma of the mandible in a male patient with unusual clinical presentation and imaging features.
