Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic dermatosis often associated with autoimmune disease that, despite published literature, still poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges due to its lack of serological and histological markers and wide possibility of differential diagnosis. Although immunosuppressive therapy usually is the first-line treatment, it has a long-lasting, unpredictable treatment course, thus necessitating the need for new treatment options. This report highlights 2 cases of PG ulcers treated with different methods that show a potentially faster healing time, as well as a review of advanced treatment options for PG.
