Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is an inflammatory hyperplastic lesion of the oral cavity with common etiological factors such as low-grade local irritation, traumatic injury, or hormonal factors. The lesion is nonneoplastic in nature with the recurrence rate of 15.8%. Moreover, as it is a benign lesion, the choice of treatment is surgical excision with the removal of underlying cause if any. The present article highlights the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) membrane in the management of PG. This case report presents a 62-year-old female patient who had reported with PG that recurred twice in 7-year period. The lesion appeared with a sessile base and was diagnosed clinically and histopathologically as PG. The PG was surgically excised exposing the underlying bone. The exposed bone surface was then covered with PRF membrane. At 6-month follow-up period, the patient did not show any further recurrence of the lesion.
