Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon, ulcerative skin disease that is often associated with systemic illness. In rare cases, PG occurs after surgery, which can lead to delayed diagnosis as other causes such as wound breakdown or bacterial/fungal infection are considered. We report a rare case of PG following the repair of an inguinal hernia, and review the presentation of this disease after surgery.
