A 14-year-old white girl was referred to the Unit of Oral Medicine and Pathology of the University of Milan, Milan, Italy, for evaluation of a painless swelling of the mandibular gingiva. Her dermatologic and medical history was unremarkable, and family history of neurofibromatosis was denied. The results of all the laboratory tests were within normal limits. She had been experiencing a swelling of her lower attached gingiva for about 2 months but had not sought treatment owing to a lack of further symptoms. When the lesion failed to resolve, she was referred to our clinic for diagnostic evaluation.
