Pyogenic granuloma refers to common, acquired, benign vascular tumors in tissues such as the skin and mucous membranes. Predisposing factors such as trauma, presence of infection and a history of pre-existing vascular malformations contribute to the appearance of pyogenic. Since pyogenic granulomas do not resolve on their own, they may bleed, ulcerate, or be cosmetically disfigured. Many therapeutic options are available, including non-surgical and surgical options. Choosing the best treatment based on the patient?s characteristics is important to achieve the best results and prevent a recurrence. In this report, we present a case of 45 years old male with pyogenic granuloma on the superior tarsal conjunctiva of his left eye with a predisposing factor of infection history. The treatment the patient received was histopathological excision with local anesthesia and evaluation 2 weeks after the procedure showed no residual lesions or signs of recurrence.
