A 21-year-old female presented with erythematous, painful, crusted plaques on her right arm and left thigh of 4 month’s duration. There was no history of preceding trauma or constitutional symptoms. Response to oral antibioticas was poor. Clinical differential diagnoses of pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) and granulomatous skin diseases such as deep fungal infection, lupus vulgaris and sarcoidosis were considered. Histopathology revealed features of granulomatous variant of PG. The patient was initially treated with dapsone and topical clobetasone propionate but she developed dapsone induced hepatitis and anemia warranting stoppage of the drug. She recovered completely from these side effects and was subsequently treated successfully with intralesional triamcinolone injections.
