Abstract

Pyogenic granuloma is an acquired vascular tumor. It most commonly presents on head, neck, trunk, distal extremities and face. It is relatively rare on female genitalia. We report two cases of solitary vulvar pyogenic granuloma. Case 1:  A 23 years old female presented with single lesion on her left labia majora since 20 days. Case 2: A 48-year-old woman also presented with a single lesion on her left labia majora since 3months. Excisional biopsies were done in both the cases which showed features suggestive of pyogenic granuloma. On follow-up, no recurrences were found. Our emphasis is to make dermatologists aware of the rare location of pyogenic granuloma on vulva.

Keywords: Pyogenic granuloma, Vascular tumor, Vulva.
