#Pyodermagagrenosum is a rare ulcerating skin condition that most of us think of in conjunction with IBD. PG can be associated with other things too, so if thereโ€™s no IBD, we should also consider other triggers, like the possibility of paraneoplastic processes.

PG is a neutrophilic dermatosis, so like Sweet Syndrome, it starts as a pustule, & ulcerates from there. Remember pathergy is a classic associated finding with neutrophilic derms. See my #tweetorial on sweet syndrome for a discussion of pathergy!
