Abstract

Pyoderma gangrenosum is an uncommon, idiopathic, chronic ulcerative inflammatory skin disease characterized by a rapidly progressive necrosis of the wound edges, and mimics a postoperative infection. Few cases have been reported after cardiothoracic surgery. We present a case of a pyoderma gangrenosum occurring after coronary artery bypass graft.
