PYOGENIC granuloma is a disorder that may involve the skin and mucous membranes.1 The term pyogenic granuloma is actually a misnomer; the lesion is neither infectious nor granulomatous. Histopathologically, it is composed of a vascularized overproliferation of granulation tissue.2 When pyogenic granuloma occurs in the ocular region, it usually involves the conjunctiva, limbus, eyelids, and, very rarely, the cornea.3-5 We report herein a case of recurrent pyogenic granuloma of the conjunctiva treated with plaque radiation therapy.
