K. V. Udhayini, Shreya Srinivasan, Celestin Geo Danny, D. Manoharan


Lobular capillary haemangioma also known as granuloma pyogenicum or pyogenic granuloma, refers to a common, acquired, benign, vascular tumor that arises in tissues such as the skin and mucous membranes. The occasional eruption of a lobular capillary haemangioma from vascular lesions like haemangiomas or existing port-wine stains suggests abnormalities in blood flow.
