Abstract
Pyoderma Gangrenosum (PG) is an inflammatory skin disorder associated with chronic inflammation and neoplastic conditions. It is relatively rare, with an estimated annual incidence of 3 to 10 cases per million people, with the highest occurrence between 20 and 50 years of age. Proper differential diagnosis is essential to guide appropriate treatment and management strategies for affected individuals. This case study presents a compelling instance of PG with a unique twist-the extracutaneous involvement of the pulmonary system, an uncommon and diagnostically challenging manifestation requiring multidisciplinary management.
