Botryomycoma is a small, benign angiomatous tumour of connective tissue type. It was described by Kuttner in 1905 (cited by Leclercq and Wibault 1972) under the name of telangiectatic granuloma, but is better known in the English-language literature by the name of pyogenic granuloma (Radcliffe-Crocker, cited in Leclercq and Wibault 1972).
