Answer

Dermoscopy patterns for pyogenic granuloma have been described. [58] A dermoscopic rainbow pattern has been reported. [59] Even dermoscopically, pyogenic granulomas may be indistinguishable from malignant melanoma. [60]

Reflectance confocal microscopic findings of solitary red nodules, including pyogenic granuloma, have been published. [61]
