BACKGROUND: In 2007, a previously unrecorded disease, fur animal epidemic necrotic pyoderma (FENP), was detected in farmed mink (Neovision vision), foxes (Vulpes lagopus) and Finnraccoons (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Finland. Symptoms included severe pyoderma with increased mortality, causing both animal welfare problems and economic losses. In 2011, an epidemiologic questionnaire was mailed to all members of the Finnish Fur Breeders' Association to assess the occurrence of FENP from 2009 through the first 6 months of 2011...

RATIONALE: The simultaneous occurrence of pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) and chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is uncommon and few cases have been reported worldwide. PATIENT CONCERNS: PG is a rare, chronic, ulcerative, neutrophilic skin disease of unknown etiology that requires immunosuppressive treatment. CGD belongs to Primary Immune Deficiencies in which the main defect lies in an inability of the phagocytic cells to generate superoxide making patients susceptible to serious, potentially life-threatening bacterial and fungal infections...

X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA) is a primary immunodeficiency disorder caused by germline mutations of B-cell tyrosine kinase (BTK) gene. It is characterized by decreased serum immunoglobulins levels and circulating mature B cells. This defect in humoral immunity leads to increased susceptibility to infection. Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon, ulcerating, neutrophilic dermatosis. Here we report PG in an 8-year-old patient with XLA. The patient received intravenous immunoglobulin treatment in conjunction with prednisone and topical application of 0...

Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a rare systemic vasculitis that affect small and medium-sized blood vessels and is accompanied by asthma, eosinophilia, and peripheral neuropathy. This report describes a case of a 52-year-old man who had a history of sinusitis, asthma, and thymus cancer and who had complained of bilateral lower extremity paresthesia and weakness for a month. Peripheral neuropathy was detected by electrodiagnostic studies. Resection of a mediastinal mass, which was diagnosed as thymic neuroendocrine carcinoma, was performed five months before his visit...

Extra-articular manifestations of rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and various spondyloarthritides including psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease-associated spondyloarthritis often involve the skin and may occur before or after diagnosis of these rheumatic diseases. Cutaneous manifestations encompass a wide range of reactions that may have a notable negative impact not only on the physical but especially on the emotional and psychosocial well-being of these patients...

H Song, N Lahood, A Mostaghimi
Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare neutrophilic dermatosis. Treatment regimens for refractory cases are non-standardized. Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is an emerging treatment with reported success, but the efficacy of IVIG for PG is unknown. In this systematic review of cases and case series, we assessed the efficacy of IVIG for treatment of PG, as observed at our institution and reported in the literature. A retrospective chart review at two tertiary care hospitals between 2000-2015, and literature searches in PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Web of Science from all years were conducted...

Rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis are inflammatory joint disorders with an autoimmune pathogenesis and systemic involvement. The skin is one of the most frequently affected extraarticular sites with a number of manifestations or distinct diseases, including common conditions, such as rheumatoid nodules and psoriasis, and rare diseases like neutrophilic dermatoses. The latter are clinically characterised by polymorphic lesions, including pustules, bullae, abscesses, papules, nodules, plaques and ulcers, and histologically by neutrophil-rich inflammatory infiltrates...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic dermatosis and pathergic reaction at surgical sites. Reports of children with postoperative PG are rare in the literature. METHODS: We report the case of a 13-year-old boy without any known preexisting illnesses, who developed severe systemic response and wound deterioration after elective hip reconstruction surgery. The working diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis was later determined to be postoperative PG...

Neutrophilic dermatoses are a heterogenous group of chronic, cutaneous inflammatory conditions characterized by the accumulation of neutrophils in the skin and by systemic inflammation. Neutrophilic dermatoses can be idiopathic or associated with other inflammatory or systemic diseases, including the group of the hereditary, autoinflammatory syndromes. Clinical management is challenging, due to limited clinical evidence and lack of clinical practice guidelines. Areas covered: This review provides an overview of current therapeutic management of the three prototypical neutrophilic dermatoses, aseptic pustulosis of the folds, Sweet syndrome and pyoderma gangrenosum...

A 68-year-old woman, with a 75-pack-year smoking history and a history of chronic excess alcohol intake, presented with a 5-week history of worsening perianal pain and ulceration. She recently had an inpatient admission with back pain and urinary tract infection during which she developed diarrhea and fecal incontinence. Initially, the perianal ulceration was diagnosed as severe irritant contact dermatitis and treated with barrier creams and topical clobetasone 17-butyrate 0.05% weight for weight, oxytetracycline 3...

<p>Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic, ulcerative dermatosis that can develop at sites of cutaneous trauma, including surgical incisions, a phenomenon known as pathergy. The characteristic lesion is a painful, rapidly expanding ulceration with a violaceous undermined border.<sup>1</sup> A biopsy taken from the expanding violaceous border shows predominantly neutrophilic dermal inflammation with neutrophilic abscess formation.</p> <p>The etiology of PG appears to be variable among patients, as about a half of the reported cases are associated with systemic disease such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, or myeloproliferative disorders, while the other half seem to be idiopathic...

Neutrophilic dermatoses are a group of conditions characterized by the accumulation of neutrophils in the skin and clinically presenting with polymorphic cutaneous lesions, including pustules, bullae, abscesses, papules, nodules, plaques and ulcers. In these disorders, the possible involvement of almost any organ system has lead to coin the term 'neutrophilic diseases'. Neutrophilic diseases have close clinicopathological similarities with the autoinflammatory diseases, which present with recurrent episodes of inflammation in the affected organs in the absence of infection, allergy and frank autoimmunity...

BACKGROUND: Skin ulcers, especially of the lower extremities, encompass a myriad of causes that a clinician must analyze. Case Re- port. A 45-year-old hypothyroid woman presented with a 6-year history of recurrent widespread eruptions of rashes and ulcers on her skin. She was diagnosed to have pyoderma gangrenosum and leukocytoclastic vasculitis. She was successfully managed with a novel combination of azathioprine and methotrexate. CONCLUSION: Pyoderma gangrenosum is an unusual wounding disease that makes the diagnosis and manage- ment challenging...
