Abstract

Pyogenic granuloma is a benign, vascular lesion of unknown etiology that occurs uncommonly in the nose. Trauma and hormonal factors are considered major causes of pyogenic granuloma. Nasal packing is a very common procedure in rhinology and this procedure might be related to the development of pyogenic granulomas. The most frequent symptoms of pyogenic granulomas are epistaxis and nasal obstruction. This report represents the second case of pyogenic granuloma occurring at the middle turbinate in the English literature and it may have arisen secondary to postoperative nasal packing or intraoperative trauma.
