Diagnosis: Pyogenic Granuloma


Before Surgical Treatment
space
After Surgical Treatment

27 year old woman presents with a bleeding growth on her finger of 4 weeks duration.

Pyogenic granulomas are non-malignant, spontaneously occurring vascular proliferations. They may occur at sites of minor trauma. They commonly occur in children and in pregnancy (also called granuloma gravidarum), but are seen in all patient populations. With the exception of pregnancy associated lesions, they do not spontaneously regress. The most common treatment is surgical excision with cauterization of the base, as was the case for this patient (please see the post-treatment photograph).
