Abstract

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare noninfectious destructive neutrophilic dermatosis of unknown origin affecting the skin and occasionally the subcutaneous fat. In this report, we present the results of intensive hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy in a 62-year-old Greek woman who had been diagnosed with ulcerative PG two years ago, but had been resistant to other therapies.
