The telangiecticum granuloma is a benign tumor of epithelial origin with preference for oral cavity, specially at the gum. It is rich in vascular content and rapid growth. It´s aetiology is attributable to local irritants such as bacterial plaque, dental calculus, trauma, and presence of root, others such as the presence of foreign bodies. This pathology is very similar to the peripheral giant cell granuloma, capillary hemangioma, exophytic squamous cell carcinoma, Kaposi's sarcoma, snowy pigmented melanomas, peripheral fibroma and mesenchymal tumors. In present paper is showed a clinical case of a female 71 years old who goes to the service of Stomatology and Oral Surgery at the School of Dentistry, University of Cartagena for presenting a tumor in jaw that was bleeding easily covering a body length from teeth number 34 to teeth number 43. We proceeded to perform surgical excision of the tumor and sent to pathology where it was confirmed diagnosis of telangiecticum granuloma.
