Abstract

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon & noninfectious neutrophilic dermatosis commonly associated with underlying systemic disease in more than 50% of cases. About 20-30% of cases are commenced and aggravated by minor trauma or surgery, a phenomenon named pathergy. PG is associated with many systemic diseases, but the association with Takayasu's arteritis (TA) / pulseless disease, which is a chronic inflammatory and stenotic disease of large-sized arteries is less common. These conditions responded well with systemic corticosteroids. The association of PG with TA has been less reported in the literature so far.

KEYWORDS: Pyoderma gangrenosum, Takayasu's arteritis, Pulseless disease.
