Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a common, acquired, benign vascular lesion of the skin and mucous membranes that can develop both spontaneously and traumatically. The lesion is usually solitary and rapidly growing and bleed easily, often occurring at the site of minor trauma of the skin. It most typically occurs on the exposed skin surfaces such as the hands (especially the fingers and forearms), the feet, face, oral mucosa but it has been rarely reported on the anogenital region (1). A 44-year-old “men having sex with men” (MSM) patient presented to our Department with two weeks duration of painless ulcerations on the coronary sulcus and shaft of the penis with unilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy (Fig. 1).
