Abstract:

Pyoderma gangrenosum is an uncommon ulcerative cutaneous disorder. Extracutaneous localizations are rare. Respiratory system involvement has been described in a few cases, but the pulmonary features reported were highly variable. We report a case of patients with Pyoderma gangrenosum combining cutaneous and pulmonary manifestations.Few cases have reported Pyoderma gangrenosum with pulmonary involvement, which appears to be manifested mainly as nodules or interstitial lung disease. The principal differential diagnosis is Wegener's granulomatosis.
