Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare, cutaneous, and ulcerative disorder that occurs as a result of neutrophil dysfunction and is generally seen in patients with underlying systemic diseases. PG is mainly treated by corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents. We present this case as a rare case of rapidly progressive PG in a lady with sarcoidosis that occurred despite being on immunosuppression with azathioprine.
