Pyogenic granuloma is one of the benign vascular neoplasms seen in the first and second decade of life, with a female predilection. Pyogenic granuloma presents as a small reddish exophytic lesion, gingiva being the commonest site. This report presents a case of recurrent episodes of pyogenic granuloma at a different site at different time intervals in an 8-year-old girl child which was found to be an unusual presentation, and it highlights the importance of early diagnosis and management of the pyogenic granuloma to avoid the discomfort.
