Related to peripheral ossifying fibroma: Peripheral giant cell granuloma

pe·riph·er·al os·si·fy·ing fi·bro·ma

a reactive focal gingival overgrowth derived histogenetically from cells of the periodontal ligament and usually developing in response to local irritants (plaque and calculus) on associated teeth; consists microscopically of a hyperplastic cellular fibrous stroma supporting deposits of bone, cementum, or dystrophic calcification.

peripheral ossifying fibroma

a relatively common gingival growth of mesenchymal cells from the periosteum or the periodontal ligament. It is a sessile or pedunculated lesion, containing fibroblastic mineralized tissue surrounded by a fibropurulent membrane. May resemble pyogenic granuloma or peripheral giant cell granuloma. This lesion differs from a peripheral odontogenic fibroma or a central ossifying fibroma.
