Pediatr Dermatol. 1997 May-Jun;14(3):213-5. doi: 10.1111/j.1525-1470.1997.tb00240.x.


Pyogenic granuloma is a common vascular lesion in childhood. The occurrence of pyogenic granulomas after various kinds of trauma to the skin is quite common; however, multiple lesions secondary to a burn are very rare. For this reason, an 18-month-old girl with multiple pyogenic granulomas following a second-degree burn is reported.
