Calcifying fibroblastic granuloma is a relatively rare ginigval overgrowth that is considered to be reactive rather than neoplastic in nature. It is a benign fibro-osseous lesion of the jaws consisting of cellular fibroblastic tissue containing rounded or lobulated masses of calcified cementum like tissue. In this article, we present a case of 32 year female with an intra oral swelling on the labial aspect of 32 & 33, appearing to originate from the marginal gingiva & interdental papilla. The swelling was sessile, mobile, non-tender, firm in consistency with an irregular surface. The colour of the gingiva was normal with slight ulceration. The swelling was excised & sent for histopathological examination. Based on clinical, radiologic and histopathologic findings a final diagnosis of calcifying fibroblastic granuloma was made.
