Oral cavity reflects the health status of an individual. Many systemic diseases have signs and symptoms that manifest in the oral cavity, which in most of the cases precede the systemic manifestations. These array of diseases also include acute leukemias which present as gingival hyperplasia as the most consistent symptom seeking dental consultation that can be easily confused with many other benign conditions that present as gingival enlargements.
