At high magnification, granulation tissue has capillaries, fibroblasts, and a variable amount of inflammatory cells (mostly mononuclear, but with the possibility of some PMN's still being present).

AnswerA scraping injury (abrasion) to the skin can lead to a "scab" that has a dark red appearance with a granular surface. A common location is the skin of the knee.
