Pyogenic granuloma as a surrogate indicator of deep seated foreign bodies:a case report

Azzopardi, Ernest A., Xuereb, Christian Borg and Iyer, Srinivasan (2009). Pyogenic granuloma as a surrogate indicator of deep seated foreign bodies:a case report. Cases Journal, 2 (8),

Abstract

Although pyogenic granulomas are often clinically associated with foreign bodies or recurrent traumatic injury, this association is not well documented. We report a case of a recurrent, intractable pyogenic granuloma due to a missed foreign body. An extensive search retrieved no previous literature reporting this association. This lack of evidence bases may hinder the hand surgeon from extending the wound incision and thorough exploration. Recurrent pyogenic granulomas should lead the hand surgeon to entertain the possibility of a missed foreign body.
