PROCIANOY, Fernando et al. Cicatricial ectropion correction in a patient with pyoderma gangrenosum: case report. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2009, vol.72, n.3, pp.384-386. ISSN 1678-2925.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0004-27492009000300020.

A 19 year old female with pyoderma gangrenosum was referred to the oculoplastic clinic for evaluation of severe cicatricial ectropion of the right lower eyelid. Examination evidenced important scarring of lower eyelid and malar region with secondary ectropion. A full-thickness skin graft associated with a lateral tarsal strip procedure and scar tissue release was performed. The patient's corticosteroid dose was raised for the procedure, and after surgery there was no healing problem or ulcer formation in the eyelid or in the graft donor site. As pyoderma gangrenosum is associated with a pathergy phenomenon in up to 25% of the cases, the onset of new lesions is a relevant concern when performing surgery in these patients. In this case, the surgery was safely performed under corticosteroid immunosuppression.
