This case is presented to challenge the reader to formulate a differential diagnosis for a patient who visits the dentist with spontaneous, continuous gingival bleeding. When this situation occurs, it is serious and requires immediate attention and a specific treatment plan to arrive at the underlying diagnosis and control the bleeding. The signs and symptoms of a patient with gingival bleeding are presented for diagnosis; the history and management are detailed, and may be useful in diagnosing and treating similar patients.
