Plasma Cell Gingivitis: Treatment with Chlorpheniramine Maleate
Ranganathan, Aravindhan Thiruputkuzhi / Chandran, Chitraa R. / Prabhakar, Priya / Lakshmiganthan, Mahalingam / Parthasaradhi, Thakkalapati
Plasma cell gingivitis is a benign lesion of unknown etiology characterized by massive and diffuse infiltration of plasma cells into the gingival connective tissue. Clinically, it can be seen as a diffuse, erythematous, and edematous swelling involving the marginal gingiva and extending into the attached gingiva. Although usually painless, the lesion can be esthetically unappealing, especially when anterior gingiva is involved. Although the usual line of management is removal of the offending agent, this report describes the treatment of plasma cell gingivitis with the topical application of chlorpheniramine maleate (25 mg) for a period of 10 days.
