Pyogenic granuloma on the conjunctiva (Video)

length: 33 seconds

This video shows a pyogenic granuloma on the conjunctiva of the eye. This occured after a piece of debris got into the eye and caused this localized inflammatory reaction. As you can see here, the bump is red/pink in color, raised, and slightly mobile. This lesion did not look malignant, which was confirmed when it regressed with artificial tears and a mild steroid.

Dear Dr.Root,

The other day i had a patient in the OPD with Pyogenic Granuloma ( slightly larger than this one) , I immediately sent the sample for biopsy. I wish i had seen this Video earlier , i would have saved a little trouble for the patient and would have tried Steroids and artificial tears before a biopsy. Anyway Thank you for the videos and the great work you have done. I have given print outs of your Ophthalmology PDFs to students and they have loved it.. I have a dream of improving medical teaching at the Grass’root’ level with ideos and cartoons, and what would be a better idea than to start with the ‘ROOT’ book of Ophthalmology .. ;) . Thank you again.
