Pyogenic granuloma

Pyogenic granuloma

Synonym:

Sclerosing hemangioma

Pyogenic granuloma is an exophytic vascular proliferation, usually in response to obvious trauma.
The deep red to red-black nodule or polyp is typically 3-5 mm in diameter, although larger lesions can occur. Multiple grouped lesions can occur.
Pyogenic granulomas grow rapidly over weeks.

Treatment:

  • Spontaneous regression can occur over months or years.
  • Liquid nitrogen cryotherapy or electrofulguration are common treatment modalities.
  • Pyogenic granulomas also respond very well to the pulsed dye laser at 585 nm.
