Superficial Granulomatous Pyoderma Successfully Treated with Intravenous Immunoglobulin
KeywordsSuperficial granulomatous pyoderma, ulceration, intravenous immunoglobulin
Superficial granulomatous pyoderma is a relatively rare variant of pyoderma gangrenosum, characterized by superficial ulceration with a vegetative margin and a clean granulating base. Ulcers in superficial granulomatous pyoderma are typically located on the trunk and may follow minor trauma. It may be misdiagnosed as classic pyoderma gangrenosum, despite having distinct characteristics. Here we report a case of superficial granulomatous pyoderma successfully treated with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg).
