The article discusses about the Giant Pyogenic Granuloma which was the diagnosis of the author on a particular medical case shown on the previous page in the same issue. According to the author, pyogenic granulomas are tumors that are benign, exophytic and vascular which are first described by Poncet and Dor, back in 1897. A single pyogenic granuloma is common and grows faster from a few millimeters to several centimeters within a week. Repeated episodes of continuous bleeding from the tumor after minor trauma are experienced by the patients suffering from this illness.
