A case of gingival fibromatosis with hypertrichosis is reported in a 10 year old girl. The condition is a syndrome and presents as a triad of gingival fibromatosis, hypertrichosis and mental retardation. Following surgical management, no recurrence was seen in the immediate post-surgical period. Even if recurrence occurs excision is recommended as the psychological benefits resulting from cosmetic improvement outweigh the danger of recurrence.
