Rationale: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare postoperative complication of enterostomy, mostly developing from dermatitis, which may have serious consequence.
Patient Concerns: A patient with lower rectal cancer receiving low anterior resection (LAR) and protective ileostomy was initially diagnosed with dermatitis, which very quickly developed to PG, though no medical or familial history was found.
Diagnosis: We diagnosed the patient with peristoaml dermatitis starting from a tiny skin ulceration, but corrected the diagnosis to PG because of the rapid development and severe consequences. Read More

Background: The PAPA syndrome, an acronym for pyogenic sterile arthritis, pyoderma gangraenosum and acne, is an autosomal dominant hereditary disease which is caused by a mutation in the PSTPIP1 ("proline-serine-threonine phosphatase interacting protein 1") gene located on chromosome 15 and encodes the proline-serine-threonine phosphatase-interacting protein 1. An association with Crohn's disease (CD), autoimmune diseases of the liver and PAPA syndrome has not yet been reported in the literature.
Objective: To thoroughly investigate a family with three affected members (mother and 2 children) with newly diagnosed PAPA syndrome and intestinal and hepatobiliary symptoms. Read More

Pyoderma gangrenosum and necrotizing fasciitis are two rare pathologic entities with a similar clinical image, but a who require a very different management. In general physicians, orthopedics, dermatologists, plastic surgeons will hardly ever see it, but when they do it is very important to distinguish between both. In this paper with the focus on the practical approach ,we expose the diagnostic pitfalls in the differential diagnosis, explain how to prevent them and summarize the evidence on therapeutic management.

Evaluation of skin diseases can be challenging for non-dermatologists. Even obvious well-characterized skin pathologies might be misleading and thus treatment can fail. Particularly the differentiation of surgical treated entities is important, for example the management of a wound healing disturbance profoundly differs from that of a pyoderma gangrenosum. Read More

Importance: Pyoderma gangrenosum and necrotizing Sweet syndrome are diagnostically challenging variants of neutrophilic dermatosis that can clinically mimic the cutaneous and systemic features of necrotizing fasciitis. Improved characterization of these rare variants is needed, as improper diagnosis may lead to inappropriate or delayed treatment and the potential for morbidity.
Objective: To determine the characteristics of necrotizing neutrophilic dermatosis to improve diagnostic accuracy and distinguish from infection. Read More

Pyoderma Gangrenosum (PG) is a rare, ulcerative cutaneous disorder typically affecting the lower extremities. The clinical appearance of PG can mimic various cutaneous infections and neoplasms, leading to misdiagnosis and mistreatment including unnecessary surgical interventions such as debridements and even amputations. Diagnostic criteria exist, including characteristic clinical appearance and the exclusion of other diagnoses, however no definitive test exists to confirm the diagnosis of PG. Read More

Ecthyma gangrenosum (EG) is a severe potentially lethal cutaneous infection that progresses sequentially from maculopapular rash to haemorrhagic bulla and then to necrotic ulceration with surrounding erythema. It usually occurs in immunocompromised patients (aplasia secondary to chemotherapy, HIV infection, neutropenia or functional deficit of neutrophils, agammaglobulinemia). It rarely affects healthy people. Read More

The diagnosis of pyoderma gangraenosum was previously made as a diagnosis of exclusion. For this reason repeated attempts have been made in recent years to develop new diagnostic scores, whereby the typical clinical and anamnestic aspects were usually taken into account and the relevant differential diagnoses were excluded. With the PARACELSUS score an evaluated diagnostic score was presented for the first time. Read More

Background: Lympho-epithelial Kazal-type inhibitor (LEKTI) tightly controls the activities of serine proteases such as kallikrein-related peptidase (KLK) 5 and KLK7 in the epidermis. LEKTI is known to be an essential molecule for the epidermal skin barrier, as demonstrated by SPINK5 nonsense mutation, which results in Netherton syndrome. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns or damage-associated molecular patterns and produce inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, and antimicrobial peptides.

Pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum and acne (PAPA) syndrome is a rare autosomal-dominant autoinflammatory disease of incomplete penetrance and variable expression. PAPA syndrome is the result of a mutation in the proline serine threonine phosphatase-interacting protein 1 (PSTPIP1/CD2BP1) gene located on chromosome 15, which results in an abnormal overproduction of the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1β (IL-1). This syndrome clinically manifests as early onset of recurrent episodes of acute aseptic inflammation of the joints, generally occurring in the first two decades of life, followed by manifestation of characteristic skin lesions in the third decade, after an obvious decline in the joint symptoms.
