abstract

  • Pyoderma gangrenosum is an uncommon skin disorder that is associated with ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, polyarthritis, and other conditions. Clinically it is usually characterized by painful ulceration of the skin and subcutaneous tissues, predominantly of the lower limbs. Treatment is empirical and often unsatisfactory. We report two cases of pyoderma gangrenosum associated with inflammatory bowel disease successfully treated with topical disodium cromoglycate.
