CAUSES OF PYOGENIC GRANULOMA
The cause of pyogenic granulomas, which are also known as lobular capillary hemangiomas, is unknown.
However, pyogenic granulomas are more commonly seen in:
1. Acne patients who have been treated with isotretinoin.
2. Cancer patients using medications 5-fluorouracil
3. AIDS patients taking indinavir
SYMPTOMS OF PYOGENIC GRANULOMA
Symptoms include a swelling which arises suddenly, grows rapidly and bleeds easily.
TREATMENT FOR PYOGENIC GRANULOMA
The treatment of pyogenic granuloma is surgical excision though some lesions may spontaneously regress without treatment.
If the pyogenic granuloma is associated with the use of specific medication, then the medication should be changed.
