Abstract

Here we report a case of Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) associated with Crohn's disease successfully treated with infliximab, The efficacy of this drug in many inflammatory diseases has already been reported, but its use in PG has only been seen in very few cases. Our study confirms that this therapy is a valid alternative solution for treating PG, which is often unresponsive to conventional therapies.
