To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of GCF in new-born. <strong>Case Report:</strong> A healthy one-month-old baby boy was referred to Department of Paediatric Dentistry for management of swelling on the upper left alveolar region which presented since birth. Clinical examination demonstrated a well define firm swelling over the upper left alveolar ridge, otherwise the swelling was asymptomatic. Patient was monitored periodically. At 1 year and 9 months of age, there were episodes of ulcerations and bleeding from the lesion as a result of trauma from eruption of opposing teeth. Surgical excision of the lesion was carried out under general anaesthesia. The histopathological examination (HPE) report interpreted the lesion as GCF. <strong>Conclusion: </strong>GCF is rare fibrous lesion that could be diagnosed only on HPE.&nbsp; Although it is an uncommon congenital lesion, GCF should be considered as one of differential diagnosis of swelling over the gingiva.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Mohd Ridzuan Mohd Razi, Nabilah Sawani Harith, Nur Fazilah Mohd Tahir, Nishanti Selvaraj Copyright (c) 2020 Malaysian Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://mpaeds.my/journals/index.php/MJPCH/article/view/103 Wed, 22 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 CONCEALED FOREIGN BODY ASPIRATION: A MASTER OF DISGUISE https://mpaeds.my/journals/index.php/MJPCH/article/view/102 <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>Aspiration of a foreign body is rare in school-age children.
