A sixteen-year-old female in the third trimester of pregnancy was evaluated for treatment of a pregnancy granuloma. No surgical treatment was rendered. The patient was given a thorough dental prophylaxis and oral hygiene instructions. The tumor was noted to have decreased in size four weeks post partum. Observation of such lesions in conjunction with standard oral hygiene procedures is warranted in lieu of surgical removal.
