Pyogenic granuloma gravidarum is a rare condition. There have been very few reports in the literature of these tumours affecting the tongue. We describe a case of pyogenic granuloma occurring on the tongue of a female who was 32 weeks pregnant. We present the clinical and histopathological features of this rare condition, discuss treatment options and review current literature.
