A 5-year-old male child presented with multiple asymptomatic red raised lesions over the left lateral side of his abdominal wall since 2 years. Cutaneous examination revealed multiple bright red, nontender, dome-shaped papules, and nodules arranged discretely. At few places, the lesions coalesced to form plaques with crusting on the surface. The lesions appeared to be arranged in a peculiar manner; with an increased concentration of the lesions in the vicinity of an atrophic central scarred area (of previous surgery) and few satellite discrete papules and nodules away from it. The differential diagnoses of pyogenic granuloma (PG), epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, and bacillary angiomatosis were considered. Histopathological examination from a nodule revealed angiomatous tissue composed of dilated thin-walled capillaries and groups of poorly canalized vascular tufts located in the upper and mid dermis suggestive of PG. A diagnosis of recurrent PG with satellitosis in a 5-year-old child was made. This case is described for the rarity of the condition in children and to emphasize the alarming presentation of a benign condition.
