Abstract

Pyoderma vegetans is diagnosed on clinical and histological criteria. Differentiation must be made from disorders such as pyoderma gangrenosum, Sweet's syndrome, and deep fungal infections. We illustrate a case of pyoderma vegetans and review the literature on this rare disorder. Clinical and histological criteria for diagnosis are presented, as well as differentiation from some mimicking disorders.
