Exophytic gingival lesions are more frequently encountered intraorally, out of which few are reactive in nature. Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is one of the commonly occurring reactive benign mucocutaneous lesions; exact etiopathogenesis remains unclear. Although surgical excision is the treatment of choice, sometimes it may induce residual soft defect formation which further creates an esthetic problem, root sensitivity, etc., The present case report not only describes the diagnosis and treatment of PG but also the immediate successful management of residual gingival defect in the esthetic area (which was originated as a sequel of the excisional biopsy of recurrent PG) by utilizing platelet-rich fibrin in conjunction with coronally advanced flap in single-stage surgery. Clinical healing was uneventful and satisfactory at 2 weeks, and excellent coverage of residual mucogingival defect with gingival esthetic and normal sulcus depth was observed at 3 and 6 months postoperatively without any sign of a complication.
