Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic-mediated inflammatory skin disease characterised by the rapid onset of painful, hemorrhagic pustules developing into necrotic ulcers occurring predominantly in women aged 20-50 years. According to the literature, all patients reported no change or worsening of the disease during pregnancy. We herein present the case of a 34-year-old woman that developed a neutrophilic dermatosis of the hand reporting complete resolution of the skin disease during pregnancy.

Abstract

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic-mediated inflammatory skin disease characterised by the rapid onset of painful, hemorrhagic pustules developing into necrotic ulcers occurring predominantly in women aged 20-50 years. According to the literature, all patients reported no change or worsening of the disease during pregnancy. We herein present the case of a 34-year-old woman that developed a neutrophilic dermatosis of the hand reporting complete resolution of the skin disease during pregnancy.
