Surgical management of pyoderma gangrenosum: case report and review.

BACKGROUND: Commonly used treatments for pyoderma gangrenosum are medical, with immunosuppressive agents employed most often.

OBJECTIVE: To report a case and discuss the indications for radical surgical treatment of pyoderma gangrenosum.

METHODS: Analysis of a case of Crohn's disease-associated pyoderma gangrenosum treated with immunosuppression followed by amputation, and a review of the literature on surgical management of pyoderma gangrenosum.

RESULTS: In unstable patients with intractable multiple medical problems, surgical treatment of pyoderma gangrenosum may be indicated by the existence of these life-threatening comorbidities. The recent literature suggests that surgical management of pyoderma gangrenosum may also be appropriate in other special circumstances.

CONCLUSIONS: Surgical management, including amputation, may have a role in the management of pyoderma gangrenosum. Further research is needed to delineate precisely the circumstances and patient factors that are appropriate indications for such surgery.
