A newborn infant with congenital epulis can be the most difficult sight for both parents as well as health care professionals involved in neonatal care. These lesions of the infant can be of varying sizes, posing a risk of airway obstruction or interfering with feeding. Dentists should have the knowledge about these lesions as they may necessitate consultation with other practitioners such as pediatricians, anesthetist, and neonatologist and provide information to parents regarding the treatment of these lesions. Furthermore, congenital epulis is an important lesion in the differential diagnosis of more aggressive lesions seen in early life. English literature review showed only three cases of congenital fibrous epulis. In this present report, a four month old male infant is described with an unusual swelling over mandibular anterior alveolar region since birth and histologically the lesion showed features of congenital fibrous epulis.
