Pyogenic granulomas (PGs) are rare benign lobular capillary hemangiomas that occur on the skin or mucosa. The most common sites of PG occurrence are the skin, lip, face and finger. This entity is extremely rare in the alimentary tract, with the exception of the oral cavity. We describe here a 72-year-old man who presented with dysphagia due to the presence of a pyogenic granuloma. The tumor was located in the mid-esophagus and it was treated with endoscopic submucosal dissection. PG is considered a lesion of reactive origin that may develop in response to trauma, infection, pregnancy, angiogenic factors or hormones. Gastrointestinal PG need to be treated because it is a rare cause of gastrointestinal hemorrhage, and it is hard to differentiate from tumorous conditions such as Kaposi's sarcoma.
