Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ten cases of pyoderma gangrenosum were seen over a period of nine years at the Waikato Hospital dermatology clinic. Several associated conditions were found. Four cases were associated with inflammatory bowel disease, three cases with arthritis, one case was found in association with myelofibrosis. Four patients were diabetic, an incidence higher than in previous studies. Most patients were treated with oral steroids but additional therapies were used to achieve disease control and for their steroid-sparing effect.
