However, the lesion did not show microscopic appearance of a pyogenic granuloma. On the second session after twelve days, the agent was diluted 1: Intra-oral incision or parallel to occlusal plane was given.

Early detection and biopsy is necessary to determine the clinical behavior of the tumor and potential dentoalveolar complications. Histologically, Masson’s hemangioma or intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia IPEH has a characteristic exuberant endothelial proliferation within the lumen of medium-sized veins. Periodontally, these lesions often appear to arise from the interdental gingival papilla and to spread laterally to involve adjacent teeth [ 8 ].

Therefore, laser and cryotherapy are not commonly used in treatment of haemangiomas due to scarring or hyperpigmentation, ingraoral atrophy, and slight depression of the skin and due to high cost [ 3940 ]. How to cite this article: This allows better lesion penetration than a PDL laser but it carries less risk of scarring than an Nd: They are usually deep red and may blanch on the application of pressure and if large in size, might interfere with mastication [ 9 ].


Oral hemangiomas are usually seen on the gingiva and less frequently at other sites where it occurs as a capillary or cavernous type, more commonly the former [ 6 ]. The confusing and misleading terminology has led to inappropriate grouping and classification of vasoformative tumours [ 4 ].
