Özet

Background: Gingival hyperplasia (GH) is a major side effect associated with cyclosporin A (CsA) therapy. The condition is further augmented due to the gingival inflammation. In this study, the effects of initial periodontal therapy and gingival curettage are analyzed in a group of patients with clinically significant (>30%) CsA-induced gingival hyperplasia.
