Pyoderma gangrenosum: classification and management.

Author information

  • 1Regional Centre of Dermatology, Mater Misericordiae, Dublin, Ireland.


Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) has four distinctive clinical and histologic variants. Some have morphologic and histologic overlapping features with other reactive neutrophilic skin conditions. PG often occurs in association with a systemic disease, and the specific clinical features of the skin lesion may provide a clue to the associated disease. Management of PG depends on its type and severity and usually requires aggressive local and systemic treatment.
