dc.description.abstract Simple surgical excision is associated with a low risk of recurrence, but often leaves a visible scar. Curettage or shave excision, with cautery, is more likely to succeed in 1 session than cryotherapy; both may leave a smaller scar than surgery. Laser therapy, which may require multiple sessions, and sclerotherapy may be least likely to cause visible scarring (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, small cohort studies and case series). Untreated pyogenic granulomas regress spontaneously within 6 to 18 months with some risk of scarring (SOR: C, a subset of patients in a retrospective cohort study). en
