Diagnosis: Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH)

Lobular capillary hemangioma is a benign, rapidly growing lesion of unknown origin. In the past, various terms, such as pyogenic granuloma, telengiectasic granuloma, granuloma pedunculatum, and infected granuloma, have been used to describe this disorder. At present, LCHis the preferred term because it best describes the lesion's histologic features, which are characterized by a proliferation of capillaries arranged in lobules in an edematous and fibroblastic stroma.1
