We report pyoderma gangrenosum in two siblings with onset during childhood and no associated systemic abnormalities. The patients were born of nonconsanguineous, healthy parents. Treatment with oral corticosteroids produced an excellent clinical response, followed by recurrence after cessation of therapy. Steroids were restarted in combination with dapsone to prevent further recurrence.
