Abstract

The formation of hypergranulation tissue is an aberrant process that interferes with normal wound healing. Excessive granulation tissue results in the persistence of open wounds. It is resistant to currently available treatment modalities. We report a case series of patients with hypergranulation tissue on the scalp who were successfully treated with a 595 nm pulsed dye laser and hydrocolloid dressing.
