Disseminated congenital pyogenic granuloma (DCPG) is an uncommon condition. Individual lesions of DCPG share clinical and histologic similarities with infantile hemangioma (IH); endothelial glucose transporter 1 (GLUT-1), which is highly expressed in IH but generally not in pyogenic granulomas (PG), is an important diagnostic tool. Treatment for DCPG remains difficult. We describe a case of DCPG effectively treated with propranolol.
