Non peristomal postoperative pyoderma gangrenosum (PPG) is a rare subtype of pyoderma gangrenosum that occurs in the early postoperative period at surgical incisions, most commonly after breast surgery. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to prevent severe scaring. TNF alpha inhibitor infliximab was reported to be efficient in treatment of PPG refractory to systemic corticosteroids. However infliximab can be not well tolerated. We report the first case of etanercept efficacy in post-plastic breast surgery pyoderma gangrenosum after infliximab serum sickness.
