We report a young patient who presented with longstanding gingival swelling. Based on the clinical, radiological, and histopathology findings following excision, a diagnosis of localized longstanding chronic inflammatory gingival overgrowth was made. Chronic longstanding inflammatory gingival overgrowth might be seen either localized or generalized owing to fibrosis. It might mimic the appearance of idiopathic gingival overgrowth. Generally, these overgrowths are painless, appear pale pink in color, vary in size and are leathery firm in consistency. Careful examination & proper history would help us in diagnosis and treatment planning.
