Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of pyogenic granuloma among Saudi females who received dental care in an out-patient clinic of a Saudi Arabian Dental Center in Riyadh within a period of five years. Materials and Methods: The study subjects consisted of 439 female patients who were all seen in the Oral Medicine Clinic and who presented with oral soft tissue lesions. Clinical diagnosis was made in the clinic and biopsied tissues were sent to the Histopathology Laboratory of the College of Dentistry of King Saud University, Riyadh. Results: A total of 182 lesions were diagnosed out of which 45 (24.75%) were pyogenic granuloma which was the highest in the group and occurred between ages 10-70 years. The most commonly affected site was the gingiva (87.09%), followed by the lip (9.67%) and buccal mucosa (3.22%). The medical status were as follows: healthy 24(80%), pregnant 3 (10%), diabetic 2 (6.66%) and kidney transplanted 1 (3.33%). Most of the cases (40%) were seen in the 31-40 years age group. Results showed that most of the pyogenic granuloma was located in the gingiva. Conclusion: It was the commonest soft tissue lesion of the oral cavity seen in our clinic over a period of 5 years.
