Peripheral giant cell granuloma (PGCG) has been given various names over the years such as peripheral giant cell tumor, reparative giant cell granuloma, giant cell epulis, giant cell hyperplasia, and osteoclastoma. It is the most commonly occurring lesion of the jaw developing from periosteum's connective tissue or periodontal membrane. It is predominantly seen in females in the mandibular region and usually in their late 40s. However, we hereby present a rare case of PGCG found in a male, in the maxillary posterior region, and in his early 20s.
