Pyogenic granuloma is a common, acquired, benign vascular tumor that is histopathologically composed of well-circumscribed, highly vascularized tissue. It is usually located on the face or digits.1 Although many treatment techniques have been described, when the pyogenic granuloma is large or occurs in surgically difficult area, choosing an appropriate treatment modality can be difficult. Therefore, to find treatment alternatives, we investigated the use of sodium tetradecyl sulfate sclerotherapy. Herein, we report on our results and on the safety of the treatment.
