Vascular anomalies include both tumors and malformations. Infantile hemangiomas are the most common benign vascular tumor of infancy that proliferate after birth and eventually involute. By contrast, congenital hemangiomas are formed at birth and are categorized into three groups: rapidly involuting, partially-involuting, and non-involuting congenital hemangiomas (NICH). NICH do not regress and grow with age. Pyogenic granulomas, another acquired vascular tumor, develop over vascular lesions and cause bleeding. Primary treatment options for NICH and pyogenic granulomas are surgical resection. Here, we report a case of a NICH with a co-existing pyogenic granuloma involving the penile shaft and scrotum treated surgically.
