  title={Recurrent pyogenic granuloma: an update},
  author={Rami A. Al-shiaty and Bacem A. E. Ottoman},
  journal={International Journal of Scientific Reports},
Background:  Given the fierce controversy about the nature of pyogenic granulomas, starting with its unfitting name and ending up with its ideal treatment modality, this paper tries to numerically identify some predisposing factors of recurrence. Methods:  The literature was initially reviewed and a total of twenty recurrent cases of pyogenic granuloma were contrasted, on one hand, to their initial appearance. On the other hand, all are contrasted to a similar number of normal mucosa using… Expand
Myxoid Cutaneous Epithelioid Angiomatous Nodule.
The myxoid change that is presented is not frequent in any of these entities, and therefore, its main interest lies in avoiding the misdiagnosis as a malignancy. Expand
Outcome of sclerosing agent for managing the oral pyogenic granuloma.
It was concluded that sclerosing agent ethanolamine oleate is better treatment option than surgical removal with lower postoperative pain, best achievement of post-operative healing and lower rate of post -operative infection for the oral pyogenic granuloma management. Expand
