Handsurgery and Surgical practice  Alstertal Handsurgeon Dr. Stefan Peters Tel. 0049 40 6023006


Mostly, the Pyogenic Granuloma occurs some days after minor injurys of the skin. Of unknown reasons, the skinwound does not heal complete and this tumorlike finding grows. However, it looks scary, but is harmless.

Seit einigen Wochen bestehendes Granulom

PG, some weeks old


Reasons unknown. Authors opinion: PG’s are known almost always only at the hand. The tissue at the hand has a very good healing tendency. so it could be, that at least it is a form of mishealing.








Some PG’s heal spontaneously. Usage of argentum nitrite stick can also help. Mostly, an operation is necessary.


In local anaesthesia removal of the PG and skin closure
