The peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) is a relatively common tumor-like growth of the oral cavity. It is also known as giant cell epulis. PGCG is an oral, nonneoplastic, tumor-like growth that occurs exclusively on the gingiva and the alveolar mucosa. It affects both sexes, with a slight predilection for females, especially after puberty. It is not a true neoplasm but rather benign hyperplasic lesion. It is probably caused by local irritation or trauma which resulted in gingival or mucosal hemorrhage.
