Description

A 65-year-old man presented with a left nontraumatic thumb lesion. Inflammatory markers were raised and infection was initially diagnosed. Despite surgical debridements and intravenous antibiotics, wounds deteriorated, extending to his index finger. Microbiology and histology were nonspecific. A diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) was made and successful treatment with steroids was initiated.
