YH Chan 陳耀海, WYM Tang 鄧旭明, WY Lam 林永賢

A 31-year-old Chinese man presented with acute generalised bullous eruption followed by painful ulcers formation with bluish edge. The skin biopsy was consistent with the clinical diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum. Subsequent workup did not identify any underlying or associated medical disorders. His skin condition was controlled with non-adhesive dressing care and analgesic intervention, high dose systemic steroid, cyclosporine and topical 0.1% tacrolimus. (H.K. Dermatol. Venereol. Bull.
