    Here is more than you ever wanted to know, I am sure, about drug induced hyperplasia. In this case, "gingival hyperplasia". Just fancy words, gingival means gums, and hyperplasia means cells growing too fast, too many of them and they accumulate over time.

Jul 15, 2010 Gingival hyperplasia, with its potential cosmetic implication and tendency to provide niche for further growth of microorganism, possess a serious concern to patients and clinicians.

Azathioprine has been used most widely but in recent years methotrexate has been used increasingly as has mycophenolate. Cyclosporin can also be useful, particularly in the treatment of thrombocytopenia. Gingival hyperplasia is an enlargement or overgrowth of the gum tissue, also known as the gingiva, around the necks of the teeth. It is an increase in the size of the gingival tissues and thus the term overgrowth is many times used in place of the term hyperplasia.
