Pyogenic granuloma is an acquired vascular proliferative lesion with associated inflammation, affecting the skin and mucous membranes more frequently. Ocular pyogenic granulomas are rare, involving adnexa, conjunctiva, and cornea. Eyelid pyogenic granuloma is uncommon, associated with chalazion, lid surgeries, lacrimal sac procedures, trauma, predisposing cutaneous lesions, congenital capillary malformations, and idiopathic. We report a case of a 40-year-old male patient who attended our outpatient department with right eye upper lid painless growth, gradually increasing in size in the last two months. The differential diagnosis was burst chalazion, capillary haemangioma, molluscum contagiosum, pilomatricoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and Kaposi's sarcoma. The lesion was surgically excised, and histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis. There was no recurrence. This present case illustrates the importance of considering benign inflammatory causes in the differential diagnosis of eyelid mass lesions to avoid unnecessarily aggressive intervention.
