INTRODUCTION: Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare inflammatory aseptic, ulcerative neutrophilic dermatosis which manifest as skin recurrent, painful ulcers. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 65-year-old man with pyoderma gangrenosum underwent left total hip arthroplasty because of femoral neck fractures. Glucocorticoid, antibiotic, anticoagulant drug, etc. were given in perioperative period. Complication of pyoderma gangrenosum was prevented successfully in perioperative period...

Primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (pcALCL) forms 9% of the cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. It usually presents as solitary reddish brown ulcerating nodule or indurated plaque. Sometimes, it mimics other dermatological diseases such as eczema, pyoderma gangrenosum, pyogenic granuloma, morphea, and squamous cell carcinoma. Our case presented with large pyogenic granuloma like lesion with regional lymphadenopathy. Since pcALCL is rare, one can misdiagnose such cases and therefore high index of suspicion is necessary...

BACKGROUND: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare, severe, destructive neutrophilic dermatosis characterized by a progressive, necrotizing process after skin injury. Its cause is still unknown, and diagnosis represents a challenge when ulcers are seen after surgery. Bacterial infection is not found in the wounds. Patients exhibit "pathergy" with the appearance of new lesions after local trauma such as surgical procedures, debridements, and wound care, suggesting altered inflammatory response...

BACKGROUND: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare skin disease characterized clinically by ulcers with undermined borders, and histologically by neutrophil-rich infitrates. PG may occur alone, in syndromic forms or associated with systemic diseases as inflammatory bowel diseases and hematological or rheumatological disorders. OBJECTIVES: Although some autoinflammatory diseases present with PG, to date, a specific genetic background related to autoinflammation has not been proven for PG...

BACKGROUND: Post Surgical Pyoderma Gangrenosum (PSPG) is a neutrophilic dermatosis causing aseptic necrotic ulcerations within surgical sites. It is often misdiagnosed as infection or ischemia and worsened by the inappropriate treatment. Therefore diagnostic clues must be identified and awareness for PSPG raised. METHODS: We present two cases of PSPG after flap surgery and a review of the literature. RESULTS: Seventeen cases of PSPG after flap surgery were found...

BACKGROUND: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon, ulcerative, cutaneous condition, often caused by surgical trauma that can masquerade as a pyogenic disease process requiring debridement and antibiotics. Treatment is, however, medical, with delay leading to significant morbidity. In addition, medical workup for coincident disorders has been suggested. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that pediatric PG has differing disease associations and therefore requires a differing medical workup...

Multiple myeloma (MM) is a proliferative disorder of plasma cells which produce abnormal immunoglobulin proteins. Skin involvement is rarely found in this disorder. They are either specific or nonspecific lesions. We report four such interesting patients who presented to us initially with common dermatoses such as leukocytoclastic vasculitis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and vesiculobullous disorders and were subsequently diagnosed to have MM. There were no skeletal involvements or renal function abnormality at the time of presentation...

BACKGROUND: Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, ulcerative, destructive, non-infectious dermatologic disease and it is one clinical entity within the spectrum of neutrophilic dermatoses. Visceral involvement, manifesting as sterile neutrophilic infiltrates in sites other than skin and, is infrequent. Splenic involvement is very rare. MAIN OBSERVATIONS: We present a case of a 58-year-old woman with pyoderma gangrenosum with spleen involvement and review all reports of similar cases...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare inflammatory and ulcerative skin disease of unknown etiology characterized by neutrophilic infiltration of the dermis, mainly affecting the lower extremities. Bullous PG is a rare variant of this disease, usually associated with hematologic disorders. Here, we report a case of pathergy-positive bullous PG with subungual involvement associated with ulcerative colitis.

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare non-infectious skin disorder. It is often associated with systemic diseases, like the inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatological disease and (hematological) malignancy. The diagnosis is affirmed through a process of elimination and is principally based on clinical presentation and course. We present a 59-year-old male with T-cell large granular lymphocyte leukemia and pyoderma gangrenosum of penis and scrotum. Finally the patient was successfully treated with systemic prednisolone...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare auto-inflammatory condition in which the alteration of neutrophil function and the innate immune response play key roles in its pathogenesis. Cases of PG have been reported in patients being treated with certain medications, which may help us to understand some of the possible pathways involved in the etiology of PG. The aim of this review is to review the cases of PG triggered by certain drugs and try to thoroughly understand the pathogenesis of the disease. To accomplish this, a PubMed search was completed using the following words: pyoderma gangrenosum, neutrophilic dermatosis, pathophysiology, drug-induced pyoderma gangrenosum...

BACKGROUND: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare, ulcerative cutaneous disorder. Ophthalmic involvement in PG is atypical, but can have devastating consequences. OBJECTIVE: We sought to characterize ocular PG to allow for earlier diagnosis and therapy. To our knowledge, this is the first systematic review summarizing this clinical variant. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted using PubMed and Web of Science. Data were extracted and studies were qualitatively assessed and analyzed...

PURPOSE: Autoimmune diseases are a common cause of delayed wound healing and should be considered in patients with chronic wounds who do not respond to local wound care or who fail skin grafting in the absence of infection. RECENT FINDINGS: Epidemiologic studies have shown that, of patients with chronic wounds evaluated in specialized wound healing clinics, 20-23% have autoimmune etiologies for their wounds including vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, pyoderma gangrenosum and other autoimmune diseases...

BACKGROUND: Over recent decades, both the incidence and prevalence of chronic inflammatory bowel disease have continued to rise in industrialized countries; the disease is frequently associated with extracutaneous involvement and comorbidity. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this work was to investigate the frequency and specificity of mucocutaneous manifestations in Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: An extensive search in peer-reviewed journals via PubMed was performed; presented is a summary and analysis of various studies and data, including data of patients treated at our department...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare, but serious neutrophilic dermatosis characterized by recurrent painful cutaneous ulcerations. It is commonly associated with inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and hematological malignancies. Because laboratory evaluations and histologic features of PG are nonspecific, diagnosis is based on the clinical features of the ulcer and requires exclusion of other conditions that cause such ulceration. The disease responds to glucocorticoids, immunosuppressives, and anti-inflammatory drugs...
