Abstract

Pyogenic granulomas are benign in nature and commonly found in the skin and mucosa. They rarely involve the gastrointestinal tract other than oral cavity. There are 30 reports in worldwide and only 4 domestic reports of such matter. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed the pedunculated masses with various surface changes in a 61-year-old man and a 55-year-old women. Endoscopic ultrasonography and endoscopic mucosal resection using snare were performed for accurate diagnosis and treatment. The tumors were pathologically diagnosed as pyogenic granulomas of the esophagus.
