The authors report the cases of three male patients, aged 36, 54 and 52 years, who developed gingival hypertrophy during treatment with nifedipine at a dose of 40 mg/daily. Hypertrophy was the same as that observed in patients treated with anti-convulsive or cytostatic drugs, and may probably be due to interference with calcium ions and local factors. Full recovery was achieved by suspending nifedipine treatment in all patients.
