A histologic review of 129 circumscribed mesenchymal lesions of the gingiva was performed. Two cases were peripheral reparative giant cell granulomas; 8 were peripheral odontogenic fibromas; 41 were inflammatory hyperplasias; 68 were pyogenic granulomas; 11 were 'hard fibromas'; one lesion exhibited the histologic features of a true fibroma.
