Pyogenic Granuloma of the Larynx: A Case Report

Pyogenic granuloma (also known as lobular capillary hemangioma) is a benign and vascu-lar lesion of the skin and mucous membranes that is frequently seen in the head and neck region. Although the etiology of the condition is still unknown, some conditions, such as trauma, poor oral hygiene, viral or fungal in-fections, and periodontal and gingival diseas-es, are considered to be related to the for-mation of pyogenic granuloma. The cheeks and the oral cavity are the major locations for pyogenic granuloma in the head and neck region, but larynx localization is also known, although rare. In this case report, we present a 47-year-old male patient with lobular capil-lary hemangioma of the left vocal fold and discuss the related literature.
