OBJECTIVE: Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, neutrophil-mediated, auto-inflammatory dermatosis. This condition has clinical features analogous to infectious processes and must be quickly diagnosed to be properly treated. The purpose of this study was to characterise relevant clinical features associated with pyoderma gangrenosum based on a large inpatient cohort. METHOD: The National Inpatient Sample (US) was used to identify patients with the diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum using ICD-9 diagnosis code 686...

A 30-year-old female presented to the rheumatology outpatient clinic of the Internal Medicine Department, Ain Shams University Hospital, Cairo, Egypt, complaining of a large right leg ulcer consistent with pyoderma gangrenosum. There was history of recurrent attacks of bleeding per rectum of one-year duration. During hospitalization she noticed blurring of vision in the left eye with diffuse blackish discoloration of the feet and toes, consistent with small-vessel vasculitis. Colonoscopy with biopsy and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease-ulcerative colitis (IBD-UC)...

We report a man who underwent autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) for multiple myeloma. Two months after ASCT, he presented with necrotising cholecystitis due to gallbladder stones and was submitted to laparoscopic cholecystectomy. About a week later, he developed progressive skin ulcers at sites where trochanters had been inserted. Progressive enlargement and necrotic aspect of these ulcers took place despite debridement and large spectrum antibiotics. New ulcers developed at the site of enoxaparin injection at the right arm (pathergy phenomenon)...

BACKGROUND: Peristomal pyoderma gangrenosum (PPG) is an uncommon subtype of pyoderma gangrenosum. PPG is a challenging condition to diagnose and treat; no evidence-based guidelines exist. OBJECTIVE: To identify important clinical features of PPG and effective treatments available for its management. METHODS: A systematic literature review of PPG was performed using PubMed, Medline, and Embase databases. RESULTS: We describe 335 patients with PPG from 79 studies...

Superficial granulomatous pyoderma gangrenosum, a rare variant of pyoderma gangrenosum, has been considered to be the most benign form of the disease. We present the case of a 15-year-old boy with pulmonary involvement and nodular scleritis associated with this unusual type of pyoderma gangrenosum and discuss its differential diagnosis.

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic non-infectious neutrophilic dermatosis that causes undermining ulcers. Topical therapies for the deep ulcers of pyoderma gangrenosum have not been established. To investigate whether negative-pressure wound therapy is effective for a pyoderma gangrenosum ulcer, we used the PICO single use negative-pressure wound therapy system (Smith & Nephew, London, UK) for two pyoderma gangrenosum patients. In these cases, the ulcers decreased in size and necrolytic tissue was removed notably...

Acral melanoma (AM) is a rare subtype of cutaneous malignant melanoma found on acral skin, primarily on the soles of the feet. Although rare, it is the most common subtype of melanoma found in patients of African or Asian ethnicity and has a poor prognosis, often because of the more advanced stage of presentation at diagnosis. In the second of this two-part series, we review the clinical presentation, histopathology, diagnosis and management of AM. Clinically, AM presents as a variegated lesion with blue-black pigment and irregular borders on acral skin...

Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp (EPDS) is an inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology. Herein, we present a review of the disease and report our own clinical and histopathological experience in eleven patients. EPDS tends to spontaneously affect bald areas of the scalp in elderly individuals. A history of previous surgery at the same site - as observed in four of our patients - is common. Coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular insult, arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and severe cases of cancer were frequent comorbidities...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a morbid necrotizing neutrophilic dermatoses for which current treatments are inadequate. Here, we describe the use of a novel noncytotoxic regimen of the deoxycytidine analog decitabine to treat underlying myeloid malignancy causing PG, to thereby produce safe and effective resolution of extensive PG.

BACKGROUND: We report a case of recurrent post-partum pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) complicated by post-partum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 23-year-old woman presented with a previous medical history of aseptic abscess of the left breast in her fourth pregnancy, which developed after surgical drainage of an inflammatory ulceration treated by atraumatic topical care. During her fifth pregnancy, the patient presented a large and painful ulceration in relation to the scar of the Caesarean section, despite the introduction of broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy...

Sweet syndrome (SS) or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis presents with the sudden onset of fever, leukocytosis and tender, erythematous, edematous, well-demarcated papules and plaques that histopathologically demonstrate a dense neutrophilic infiltrate. A total of 20% of patients with SS have malignancy-associated disease that can present with bullous or atypical skin lesions that mimic pyoderma gangrenosum, another neutrophilic dermatosis. Both entities exist on a spectrum, and in the context of underlying malignancy, these neutrophilic diseases become less clinically distinct...

An increased expression of interleukin-23 has been observed in patients with pyoderma gangrenosum, leading to the use of ustekinumab as a therapeutic option. We report the successful use of ustekinumab in three patients with treatment-resistant pyoderma gangrenosum of varying clinical presentations.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of idiopathic inflammatory conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract, which consists of Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). IBD has multiple extraintestinal manifestations (EIMs), and the prevalence of mucocutaneous manifestations in IBD has been reported as 21%-41%1 . This study aimed at investigating the prevalence of mucocutaneous manifestations (recurrent aphthous ulcer [RAU], erythema nodosum [EN], psoriasis and pyoderma gangrenosum [PG]) of IBD and analyzing of the associations of diseases in a large treatment center of central China...

Neutrophilic dermatoses are a group of inflammatory skin disorders characterized by an overactive innate immune system with dysregulation of neutrophils without underlying infectious etiology. The major representative conditions discussed are Sweet syndrome; pyoderma gangrenosum; neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis; palmoplantar eccrine hidradenitis; subcorneal pustular dermatoses; bowel-associated dermatosis arthritis syndrome; and synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis. We will also discuss other neutrophilic conditions present almost exclusively in the pediatric population, including congenital erosive and vesicular dermatosis with reticulated supple scarring and the recently described group of autoinflammatory diseases...
