Figure 2: After 1 month, a 15 mm × 20 mm exophytic growth extending from the palatal donor site to distance of 3–4 mm from the extraction socket was observed (a). The growth was pediculated at the palatal donor site and resulted in the displacement of the “epithelial door” that essentially covers the surgical site in connective tissue graft procedures (b). Surgical excision of the growth was planned and the growth was excised from the base (c). The growth appeared to have originated mostly from the donor site and from an isthmus of connective tissue graft near the extraction socket (d). The wound margins were approximated with a suture (e). Two weeks post-excision, the sites exhibited uneventful healing (f)
