A case of simultaneous appearance of bitemporal sterile abscesses of the upper eyelids and pyoderma gangrenosum in an 80-year-old woman with an acute flare of ulcerative colitis is described. Therapy with high-dose corticosteroids led to healing of the skin and upper eyelid lesions and induced remission of ulcerative colitis.
