Pyogenic granuloma also known as lobular capillary hemangioma is although rare but well-documented clinical entity. However, it is more commonly reported in cases pertaining to lesions of oral cavity and especially in female patients during pregnancy usually in third decade of life. But, here we report a very uncommon presentation of pyogenic granuloma arising from nasal septum in a 52-year-old male patient who presented to us with history of epistaxis and left-sided nasal obstruction since 4 months.
