A patient presented with an alveolar ridge swelling in the lower left central incisor region. Examination showed a well defined soft tissue swelling involving the gingival tissue. Radiology (plain radiographs and CT scans) showed a 12 mm lesion in the mandibular symphysis centered over the LL1 but extending laterally to LR1 and LL2. There was no evidence of an intra-osseus lesion. A provisional diagnosis of a soft tissue (non dental) lesion likely related to trauma was made.
