Abstract

Pyogenic granuloma is a relatively common entity first described by Poncet and Dor in 1897 as 'human botryomycosis'. It may occur anywhere on the skin, including the mucosal surface, but is most common on the fingers, around the nails, on the face and on the scalp. The tongue is a rare location for its occurrence. There is controversy as to etiology of pyogenic granuloma and conservative excision is the treatment of choice. We describe a 41-year old woman with a solitary protruding nodule on the tongue that was treated by excision and electric cautery.
