PROLIFERATIVE GINGIVITIS OF PREGNANCY: REPORT OF CASES

PROLIFERATIVE GINGIVITIS OF PREGNANCY: REPORT OF CASES Abstract A few years ago, I drew attention to a type of inflammatory growth occurring on the gums of pregnant women for which the name "proliferative gingivitis of pregnancy" was proposed.1 To my knowledge the condition has not been reported in dermatologic literature. In the past year several similar cases, some of which form the basis for this report, have been observed. For purposes of comparison I include the description of a case of giant cell sarcoma occurring in the mouth of a pregnant woman. The literature on this subject, having been reviewed elsewhere,1 need not be considered here. A clear idea of this condition can best be given by a brief description of a case that was followed through three pregnancies.

Abstract

Abstract A few years ago, I drew attention to a type of inflammatory growth occurring on the gums of pregnant women for which the name "proliferative gingivitis of pregnancy" was proposed.1 To my knowledge the condition has not been reported in dermatologic literature. In the past year several similar cases, some of which form the basis for this report, have been observed. For purposes of comparison I include the description of a case of giant cell sarcoma occurring in the mouth of a pregnant woman. The literature on this subject, having been reviewed elsewhere,1 need not be considered here. A clear idea of this condition can best be given by a brief description of a case that was followed through three pregnancies. Case 1.—A Negress, 18 years of age, who was in the second month of her first pregnancy, noted that the gum between the right upper References 1.
