Abstract

VERMA, Shyam B.. Atypical pyoderma gangrenosum following total knee replacement surgery: first report in dermatologic literature. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.6, pp. 689-691. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000600020.

An atypical pyoderma gangrenosum mimicking a post surgical cutaneous and subcutaneous infection is being reported for the first time in international literature after knee replacement surgery with the operation site being the starting point of pyoderma gangrenosum. Orthopedic surgeons and general surgeons should be aware of the existence of this disease and its association with surgical trauma.
