Background: Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is benign vascular tumour presenting as small, friable, reddish papule or nodule. Bleeding tendency of PGs warrants their removal.Various available treatment options require local anesthesia, cause pain, local side effects, scarring and become undesirable for treating children. Hence, topical beta blocker (timolol 0.5%) becomes a valuable option for treating PG in children.
