Abstract

DOMINGUEZ-CHERIT, Judith; PUEBLA-MIRANDA, Miriam; RANGEL-GAMBOA, Lucía  and  ROLDAN-MARIN, Rodrigo. Giant gravidarum granuloma of the scalp. Gac. Méd. Méx [online]. 2006, vol.142, n.5, pp. 411-413. ISSN 0016-3813.

Lobular capillary hemangioma (pyogenic granuloma) has been reported more frequently in the skin (88%) than in the mucous membranes (12%). Granuloma gravidarum is a pyogenic granuloma that develops during pregnancy, often in the oral mucosa. Estrogens apparently increase the inflammatory response of mucous membranes. In this article, we describe the first case of a granuloma gravidarum of the scalp.

Keywords : Granuloma gravidarum; pyogenic granuoma.
