Pyogenic granuloma, also known as lobular capillary haemangioma, is a common benign vascular proliferation of not yet fully understood aetiology. Pyogenic granuloma can occur in all age groups and affect both men and women. Although pyogenic granuloma is a benign lesion, differential diagnosis may include malignant tumours such as amelanotic melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and spindle cell tumour. Surgical excision with primary closure is the usual treatment for pyogenic granuloma/lobular capillary haemangioma and has the lowest rate of recurrence.
