Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a common benign vascular proliferation that usually occurs on the skin and mucosa. Various treatment options exist in literature with no clear consensus. Our objective was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of sclerotherapy (sodium tetradecyl sulfate [STS]) in PG. This case series included 15 patients of PG, treated with intralesional injection of the STS (3%, 30 mg/ml) solution. All patients showed complete resolution of PG, without any major complication or recurrence during a 6-month follow-up period.
