Pulse granuloma or hyaline ring granulomas as frequently encountered while histopathological examination of various oral as well as extraoral lesions. There was a great deal of uncertainty about the pathogenesis of these structures. Many confusing terminologies were also suggested and used for pulse granulomas. However, now it is clear that pulse granuloma is fundamentally a lesion arising due to chronic granulomatous inflammation in response to implantation of foreign particles in the submucosal connective tissue. Appearance of multiple pulse granulomas may create diagnostic confusion. The purpose of this paper is an attempt to revisit the clarified pathogenesis and terminology of pulse granulomas.
