Lumps, Bumps, and Things that Go Itch in Your Office!
McLeod, Renee P.
Journal of School Nursing, v21 n2 p127-128 2005
This article presents a short case presentation and differential diagnosis of pyogenic granuloma, a dome-shaped solitary vascular tumor. The tumors are a proliferation of capillaries and blood-filled vascular channels within a circumscribed area, which gives the lesion a lobulated appearance. They usually appear as dull red, firm nodules that may have a moist to scaly, fragile surface that can be inflamed. The author provides a discussion of a pyogenic granuloma and how a school nurse should handle such disease or condition. Key points for school nurses are presented. (Contains 1 figure.)
