Introduction: Pyogenic granuloma is an excessive fibroproliferative tissue occurring on the ocular surface after any minor injury or surgery. It is not often reported after Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) excision.
Case Report: We report a case of OSSN in a 38-year-old patient that was managed by excision biopsy and post –op mitomycin C. While on treatment patient presented with a rapidly developing fleshy mass. On excision biopsy the mass was revealed to be fibro-proliferative granulation tissue and diagnosed as pyogenic granuloma. We did a pubmed literature search for pyogenic granuloma on ocular surface and reviewed all the articles.
Conclusion: Pyogenic granuloma occurring post excision of OSSN poses difficulty in diagnosis and needs an aggressive management regime to rule out recurrence of OSSN before diagnosing it as a more benign pyogenic granuloma.

Keywords: OSSN, Ocular surface squamous neoplasia, Pyogenic granuloma, Post excision recurrence.
