Post-colectomy peristomal pyoderma gangrenosum
We report a patient with peristomal pyoderma gangrenosum which mimicked a necrotizing bacterial infection. It occurred as an extra-intestinal manifestation of chronic mucosal ulcerative colitis (MUC). Initially misdiagnosed as a cutaneous infection, it finally responded to intravenous high dose corticosteroid therapy.
