A 5-month-old healthy female presented with a pyogenic granuloma on the cheek. The lesion was treated with topical 0.5% gel-forming solution, resulting in regression of the lesion after 1 month of treatment and no recurrence at 8 months. This case suggests that treatment of pyogenic granulomas with topical timolol may be considered, especially when other treatment modalities are challenging or could result in significant scarring.
