Pyogenic granuloma is a commonly acquired, benign, vascular tumor that arises in the skin and mucous membranes. It is one of the inflammatory hyperplasias that results from some minor trauma to the tissues which provides a pathway for the invasion of non-specific types of microorganisms. It might be related to hormonal changes. Histopathological findings show prominent capillary growth in hyperplastic granulation tissue suggesting a strong activity of angiogenesis. Treatment modalities include observation and surgical excision.
