BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Pyogenic granuloma is a lesion that affects pregnant women between the third and ninth month of pregnancy. It is a benign vascular proliferative disease that often appears on the gingiva, but may also appear on the lips, skin and extramucosal tissues. The purpose of the report is to introduce a pregnant woman with pyogenic granuloma with a lesion on her face.
CASE REPORT: The patient is a pregnant woman at 39 weeks of gestation without a history of a specific illness who referred to Shahid Akbarabadi Hospital in Tehran due to labor pain. A vascular nodule was visible on her face, which appeared from the first half of pregnancy and was reported to be normal in terms of paraclinical experiments. This vascular nodule improved after delivery but did not completely disappear. The patient underwent aesthetic surgery for the vascular nodule three months after delivery. The results of the pathology confirmed pyogenic granuloma.
CONCLUSION: According to the results of this report, if unusual lesions are observed on the face during pregnancy, oral and dental problems should be considered and patients should be examined by the dentist.
