Clinical Features

A pyogenic granuloma initially presents as a bright red, shiny papule with a thin collarette of hyperkeratosis. It may be ulcerated and tends to bleed profusely with minor injury. Later, the lesion reepithelializes and becomes a dull red to purple color.

The differential diagnosis includes amelanotic melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, bacillary angiomatosis, and cutaneous metastasis.
