Peripheral giant cell granuloma is an uncommon benign tumor of oral cavity. A 62 years old female patient presented with an easily bleeding mass localized in the upper jaw. In clinical examination 11 mm diameter gingival lesion was seen. Flap surgery was planned to access the periodontal defect and remove the lesion. Bone graft and membrane was used to regenerate periodontium. There was no recurrence in three month. In this case; possible ethiology was the presence of periodontitis and poor oral hygiene. Periodontal treatment and proper oral hygiene are the key factors for prevention of the recurrence after excision of the lesion.
