The text is the summary of recent articles on Pyogenic Granuloma at 75 thresold from National Library of Medicine (NLM). This information is subject to NCBI's Disclaimer and Copyright notice.

Histological analysis confirmed the diagnosis of a pyogenic granuloma of the Penis [1]. Its pathological examination confirmed a Lobular capillary hemangioma [2]. In all cases, complete resolution occurred within the treatment period with no Recurrence for at least 3 months [3]. Editorial Boards write the PDQ cancer information summaries and keep them up to date [4]. The summaries are reviewed regularly and changes are made when there is new information [5].

Deep-seated/subcutaneous pyogenic granulomas (DSPG) are rarely seen in any age group [6]. A small bowel capsule endoscopy showed a pyogenic Granuloma in jejunum that was resected endoscopically with single balloon enteroscopy with no major complications [7]. The pyogenic granuloma of the Vulva is a rare finding and a limited Number of case reports are available in the literature [8]. The following diagnoses were attributed: caliber-persistent artery, infantile hemangioma, vascular malformation, venous lake, thrombus, papillary endothelial hyperplasia and pyogenic Granuloma [9]. Glucose transporter protein of the erythrocyte type was positive only in infantile hemangioma [10].

Seventy-five cases of reactive lesions of the Oral cavity, including pyogenic granuloma, fibroma, peripheral giant cell Granuloma, Inflammatory fibrous Hyperplasia, peripheral ossifying fibroma (15 for each category) were immunohisto-chemically stained with MC tryptase and CD31 [11]. Sometimes, it mimics other dermatological diseases such as eczema, pyoderma gangrenosum, pyogenic granuloma, morphea, and squamous cell Carcinoma [12]. Our case presented with large pyogenic granuloma like lesion with regional lymphadenopathy [13]. This report describes a case of adenosquamous Carcinoma with clinical features of a benign Lesion and discusses the differential diagnoses, especially regarding histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses [14]. Excisional Biopsy was performed following clinical diagnosis of pyogenic granuloma [15].

The parents of the eight day old male Infant brought the Child with a natal tooth associated with a soft tissue Lesion growing from the gum pad [16]. The natal tooth was extracted and the Lesion was surgically excised [17]. Complete healing of the gumpad took place after Excision of the lesion and extraction of the natal tooth and the Child was able to feed normally within a week [18]. The patient underwent wide local excision and at the end of five months of follow up there were no features of local Recurrence or Metastasis [19]. A clinical diagnosis of a pyogenic granuloma was made and an incisional Biopsy was submitted for histopathological evaluation [20].

No new cases of pyogenic granuloma or graft contraction were seen at this time point in both groups [21]. Here, the authors present an unusual patient of an extra-gingival pyogenic granuloma with large dimensions and displacing Teeth arising in a male patient [22].
