Necrotizing periodontal diseases are the most severe rapidly destructive, non-communicable, periodontal infection of complex etiology. The diagnosis is based on clinical and radiological features. Necrotizing periodontal lesions are confined to periodontal tissues, including gingiva, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone. The pathognomonic clinical characteristics are the typical punched out appearance, interproximal craters and spontaneous bleeding. The predisposing factors include host factors, such as psychological stress, immunosuppression, a smoking habit, and poor oral hygiene. If it is left untreated, it may spread laterally and apically to involve the entire gingival complex. In this case report, we presented a 24- year old male with necrotizing gingivitis and no systemic disease with a history of intense stress. The case report describes the clinical diagnosis of Necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis (NUP) and its therapeutic management by conservative oral treatment and regular psychological follow up.
