Granulations

 

in medicine, the moist, bright red tissue with granular surface that develops during the healing of wounds of inflammatory foci.

Granulations are rich in blood vessels and young connective-tissue cells, which rapidly proliferate and replace the destroyed section of tissue. When there is excessive formation of granulations, such as in the area surrounding a fistula (so-called proud flesh), healing is impaired. Granulations of this sort are removed surgically.
