The occurrence of pyoderma gangrenosum during pregnancy is uncommon.Objective:We report a case of a patient with an aggravation of preknown pyoderma gangrenosum during pregnancy who was successfully treated with intravenous immunoglobulins.Conclusion:Administration of immunoglobulins represents a safe and effective treatment option for this subset of patients, as demonstrated in the present case.
