Pyogenic granuloma is a benign vascular, inflammatory proliferation that appears following minor trauma in children. The exact pathogenesis of pyogenic granuloma is unknown, but its formation is closely related to minor trauma, chronic irritation, and hormonal influences. We present a unique case of a pyogenic granuloma that appeared in an infant following circumcision.
