    A case of multiple pyogenic granuloma affecting the penis of a 28 year old man is reported. The lesions were arranged in a floret-like fashion around the inner aspect of the prepuce and developed after circumcision for congenital phimosis. Histopathological examination of sections from a biopsy specimen of the papillomatous growths revealed the findings of pyogenic granuloma. In this patient, the pathogenesis of the lesions is probably related to the failure in surgical wound repair that followed circumcision. Problems of clinical and histopathological differential diagnosis are discussed.
