Abstract

• A case of pyogenic granuloma involving the cornea simulated recurrent squamous cell carcinoma clinically and was misdiagnosed as invasive squamous cell carcinoma on biopsy. Ophthalmologists and pathologists should be aware of the capability of the corneal or conjunctival tissues to mount a granulation tissue response to injury.
