Abstract BACKGROUND: Pyogenic granuloma (PG) with satellitosis is a rare phenomenon that typically occurs in children and teenagers. It can be seen after excision or trauma to the original lesion. OBJECTIVE: The aim is to review an atypical case of PG with satellitosis and to highlight a conservative approach to management. METHODS: This article includes a case report of a 48-year-old woman developing PG with satellitosis in her right foot and includes a review of the literature. RESULTS: There are few cases of PG with satellitosis in the literature. Our patient differs from most given her age and the location of the lesions. She was managed differently with a conservative observational approach, and, over time, her symptoms abated. CONCLUSION: PG with satellitosis can occur in varying patient populations with varying presentations. Although several treatment options exist, managing patients conservatively should be considered an approach to management. Early investigations should be conducted to rule out more sinister items in the differential diagnosis.
