pyogenic granuloma

Definition: Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) is a specific entity among vascular lesions of the head and neck that may be diagnosed loosely as “pyogenic granuloma”. In contrast to granulation polyps and other reactive conditions, LCH is regarded as likely a benign vascular neoplasm.

Lobular capillary hemangioma is a lesional pattern that can be observed in several vascular tumors or vascular malformations (vascular dysplasias). Lobular capillary hemangioma is a common benign vascular lesion of the skin and mucosa.

In the skin, lobular capillary hemangioma can be used as a synonym of pyogenic granuloma but it seems to be a lesional pattern observed in several entities. (7435775)
