Hereditary gingival fibromatosis

In both cases it was found that on eliminating the gingival fibrosis, eruption proceeded physiologically. There are very few ways to test a patient for HGF. Inflammations, tumors, and cysts can also present themselves as gingival enlargements [ 1 ].

WB Saunders Co; The HGF has a variable clinical presentation. Autosomal dominant gingival fibromatosis Autosomal dominant gingival hyperplasia Hereditary gingival hyperplasia Prevalence: The gingival enlargement may occur alone or in combination of other symptoms as part of a syndrome.

HGF may also be caused by unwanted side effects of pharmacological agents like phenytoinciclosporinand some calcium-channel blockers, meaning HGF is a disease that can be drug-induced. Through review of literature revealed that HGF is usually an autosomal dominant condition, however the recessive forms are also reported. Chronic periodontitis Localized aggressive periodontitis Generalized aggressive periodontitis Periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic disease Periodontosis Necrotizing periodontal diseases Abscesses of the periodontium Combined periodontic-endodontic lesions.


It appears that the human gingival fibroblasts from hereditary fibromatosis tissue have characteristics of permanently activated fibroblasts. Clinical examination showed persistence of the primary incisors, no eruption of the permanent incisors and lack of lip closure. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only. Fifteen months later, with regular follow-up visits every three months, the patient showed eruption progress, possibly encouraged by the gingival tissue removal Fig.

It presents an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern although its penetrance and expressivity are variable. Post-surgical healing was uneventful.

Hereditary gingival fibromatosis: Characteristics and treatment approach

Hereditary gingival fibromatosis in a family of Zimmerman-Laband syndrome. After discussing the treatment possibilities with the patient and her parents, the decision was made to wait until growth potential decreases following the adolescent growth spurt and to fibromatoosis the problem with orthognathic surgery. Some researchers suggest that HGF is transmitted as a Mendelian trait since both autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive transmission has been reported since the early s.
