  • BACKGROUND Pyogenic granulomas (PG) are benign vascular lesions which were thought to have an infectious etiology, yet none has been found. Bacillary angiomatosis (BA), which presents as disseminated vascular lesions in immunosuppressed patients, and verruga peruana (VP), which presents as crops of vascular nodules in immunocompetent persons, are caused by infection with Bartonella. Thus, the question was raised whether Bartonella could be associated with the development of PG, also a… CONTINUE READING
