Lobular capillary haemangioma also called as pyogenic granuloma is a hyperplastic vascular lesion generally found in mucus membranes of head and neck region especially the nasal and oral mucosae. It is rapidly growing and more common in paediatric age group, pregnancy and after surgery or trauma. Its occurrence involving caruncle is uncommon. Here we report a case of a 46 year old male who presented to us with caruncular nodular mass which on excision biopsy was diagnosed as lobular capillary hemangioma. The purpose of this case report is to make readers aware of its rare site of presentation and management. Pyogenic granuloma should be borne in mind as one of the differentials in cases like this and complete excision should be done to prevent recurrence and to rule out malignant entities.
