Answer

Pyoderma gangrenosum may also develop in Crohn disease, though it is uncommon in this setting. Pyoderma gangrenosum is often an indolent chronic ulcer, which may occur even when the disease is in remission. Therefore, medical therapy for the underlying bowel disease is not always successful.
