Pyogenic granuloma is a moderately common, benign mucocutaneous lesion. It is a tumor-like proliferation to a non specific infection. It is non-neoplastic in nature and presents in different clinical and histological forms. In appearance, they are typically solitary and vascular usually seen in the oral cavity.  It is an oral disease which appears in the mouth as an overgrowth of tissue in response to irritation, physical trauma or hormonal factors. The name for pyogenic granuloma is misnomer because of the fact that it is not a true granuloma. Skin of the face and neck, upper and lower extremities, and mucous membranes of nose and eyelids are common areas for extraoral involvement. The clinical diagnosis of extraoral variant of this lesion being an uncommon occurrence can be quite challenging and misleading as they sometimes may mimic more serious lesions. The purpose of this article is to report an unusual case of pyogenic granuloma occurring on lower lip.

Keywords :

Extraoral; lower lip; pyogenic granuloma; rare variant.
