Byeon, Kim, and Chun: Multiple Satellite Pyogenic Granuloma


Multiple satellite pyogenic granuloma developed on the left upper back of a 14-year-old boy after excision of a hemangioma-like lesion. He has had nevus flammeus on the left upper arm since birth with fine linear telangietasiae around the main lesions. Histopathology showed the capillary proliferation in the dermis, and transmission electron microscopy revealed multiple Weibel-Palade bodies, considered an early endothelial cell marker, in the cytoplasm of the endothelial cells. We believe this patient may have the propensity to develop different angiomatous lesions.
