Pyogenic granuloma of the duodenum as an unusual cause of gastrointestinal bleeding

410-411

Marta Cuadros Martínez, Rubén Fernández Martos,

Pyogenic granulomas are lobular capillary hemangiomas, usually found on skin and oral mucosa. To date, few cases of pyogenic granuloma of the gastrointestinal tract have been reported, being duodenal involvement extremely rare. We report the case of a patient with a history of long-standing iron deficiency anemia where the endoscopy revealed an oozing redish semipedunculated polypoid lesion in the duodenum with a biopsy specimen consistent with a pyogenic granuloma. The lesion was removed by endoscopic resection, and during the follow-up hemoglobin level was maintained.
