- Pyoderma gangrenosum is a condition that causes tissue to become necrotic, causing deep ulcers that usually occur on the legs. When they occur, they can lead to chronic wounds. Ulcers usually initially look like small bug bites or papules, and they progress to larger ulcers.
The etiology of pyoderma gangrenosum is poorly understood, but dysregulation of the immune system (specifically, altered neutrophil chemotaxis) is believed to be involved.
