A pyogenic granuloma is a benign vascular lesion, considered reactional, that usually occurs in the gingiva between the second and third decades of life. It is usually caused by traumatic injuries and local irritation. The purpose of this paper is to report a rare case of a 2-year-old child with a pyogenic granuloma in the upper lip caused by trauma--resulting in increased size, breast-feeding difficulties, and esthetic concerns, and to present the treatment instituted.
