Abstract

Pyoderma gangrenosum(PG) is a rare neutrophilic dermatosis characterized by painful necrotic ulcerations. It affects patients between the age of 40 and 60 years. Clinically, it presents as a very painful papulopustule or bulla which rapidly progresses to form deep necrotic ulcers. Hematologic malignancies are commonly linked with bullous PG. We report a case of bullous PG who presented with multiplehaemorrhagic blisters without any systemic associations.
