ABSTRACT

El pioderma gangrenoso ampollar es una variedad infrecuente de pioderma gangrenoso, que se asocia en el 50-70% de los casos con trastornos oncohematológicos. Se comunica el caso de una paciente de 59 años, que consultó por fiebre y ampollas purpúricas de rápida progresión, con compromiso cutáneo mucoso. Con sospecha de una enfermedad neutrofílica, ampollar, o infección por gérmenes oportunistas, se realizó biopsia de piel para estudio histopatológico, inmunofluorescencia directa y cultivo. Los cultivos y la inmunofluorescencia directa fueron negativos, y la anatomía patológica reveló un denso infiltrado inflamatorio con predominio neutrofílico en dermis. Ante el diagnóstico de pioderma gangrenoso ampollar, se realizó una punción-aspiración de médula ósea cuyo resultado fue compatible con leucemia mieloide aguda. Se instauró tratamiento con corticosteroides sistémicos, a pesar de lo cual la paciente evolucionó desfavorablemente y falleció a los 15 días de su ingreso hospitalario. Este caso ilustra la asociación de esta enfermedad cutánea con trastornos oncohematológicos y el mal pronóstico que esto implica a corto plazo. (AU)


Bullous pyoderma gangrenosum is an infrequent type of pyoderma gangrenosum, associated with onco hematological diseases in 50-70% of cases. We present the case of a 59-year-old patient with fever and mucocutaneous hemorrhagic bullous of rapid progression. A biopsy for histopathology, direct immunofluorescence (DIF) and skin culture was made, considering the possibility of neutrophilic dermatoses, bullous dermatosis or an opportunistic infection. The results of both the culture and the DIF were negative. The histopathological examination of the specimen revealed a dense dermal polymorphic infiltrate composed primarily of neutrophils. Considering bullous pyoderma gangrenosum as a potential diagnosis, a bone-marrow biopsy was performed. This study revealed an acute myeloid leukemia. Although systemic corticosteroid therapy was begun, the patient presented an unfavorable evolution that led to her death 15 days after her admission at the hospital. This case shows the association between bullous pyoderma gangrenosum and onco hematological diseases. In addition, it highlights the poor prognosis related to these diseases in the short term. (AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Pyoderma gangrenosum is a neutrophilic dermatosis characterized by chronic ulcers due to an abnormal immune response. Despite the existence of diagnostic criteria, there is no gold standard for diagnosis or treatment. In Latin America, recognizing and treating pyoderma gangrenosum is even more challenging since skin and soft tissue bacterial and non-bacterial infections are common mimickers. Therefore, this review aims to characterize reported cases of pyoderma gangrenosum in this region in order to assist in the assessment and management of this condition. Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and Chile are the countries in Latin America that have reported the largest cohort of patients with this disease. The most frequent clinical presentation is the ulcerative form and the most frequently associated conditions are inflammatory bowel diseases, inflammatory arthropaties, and hematologic malignancies. The most common treatment modalities include systemic corticosteroids and cyclosporine. Other reported treatments are methotrexate, dapsone, and cyclophosphamide. Finally, the use of biological therapy is still limited in this region.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN El Pioderma Gangrenoso (PG) es una enfermedad inflamatoria necrotizante crónica, que pertenece al espectro de las dermatosis neutrofílicas. Histológicamente se caracteriza por mostrar un infiltrado inflamatorio denso de neutrófilos de origen no infeccioso. El PG suele asociarse a enfermedades sistémicas como la enfermedad inflamatoria intestinal, la artritis reumatoide o diversas enfermedades hematológicas. Presenta fenómeno de patergia y suele responder satisfactoriamente a tratamientos inmunosupresores. Su etiología no está bien definida. En la literatura se han publicado 15 casos de pioderma gangrenoso vulvar asociado al uso de rituximab. Nosotros presentamos un nuevo caso, que tuvo lugar en una mujer de 37 años en tratamiento de mantenimiento con rituximab por un linfoma no Hodgkin folicular. El rituximab (MabThera®) es un anticuerpo que reconoce la molécula CD20, que es una proteína no glucosilada que se expresa en la superficie de los linfocitos B. Este fármaco se ha utilizado para el tratamiento de diferentes enfermedades reumatológicas en los últimos años.


ABSTRACT Pyoderma Gangrenosum is a chronic necrotizing inflammatory disease that belongs to the spectrum of Neutrophilic Dermatoses. Histologically, it is characterized by a dense inflammatory infiltrate of non-infectious neutrophils. Etiology is not yet well defined. It is usually associated with systemic diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis or hematological diseases. It presents pathergy phenomenon and usually respond satisfactorily to immunosuppressive treatments. There have been published only 15 cases of vulvar pyoderma gangrenosum associated with the use of rituximab. We present a new case, which occurred in a 37-year-old woman on maintenance treatment with rituximab for a follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Rituximab (MabThera®) is an antibody that recognizes the CD20 molecule, which is a non-glycosylated protein that is expressed on the surface of B lymphocytes. This drug has been used for the treatment of different rheumatic diseases in recent years.

ABSTRACT

Pioderma gangrenoso é uma doença caracterizada por úlceras dolorosas, com bordos imprecisos, de diversos tamanhos e profundidade. O diagnóstico é eminentemente clínico, sendo muitas vezes de exclusão. O tratamento não é específico. O desbridamento cirúrgico não é indicado devido a seu potencial de patergia. Neste trabalho, relatamos um caso de pioderma gangrenoso em uma paciente submetida à abdominoplastia.


Pyoderma gangrenosum is a disease characterized by painful ulcers, with imprecise borders of various sizes and depth. The diagnosis is essentially clinical and often exclusionary. The treatment is not specific. Surgical debridement is not indicated because of its potential pathergy. We report a case of pyoderma gangrenosum in a patient who underwent abdominoplasty.

ABSTRACT

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, ulcerative, non-infectious neutrophilic dermatosis, commonly associated with underlying systemic disease. The features of pyoderma gangrenosum are not specific histopathologically and for this reason the diagnosis is based on clinical feature. The systemic administration of corticosteroids is the mainstay of treatment. We present five cases of pyoderma gangrenosum of age group ranging from 2 to 75 years. One of these patients was HIV-infected, and one was having discoid lupus erythematosus. The lesions were present on thighs in 3 cases, over back in one and breast in one. Biopsy showed central necrosis with multiple neutrophilic abscesses in epidermis. The dermis showed dense neutrophilic infiltration in both superficial and deep dermis. The lesions responded well to oral corticosteroids except in the case of HIV-infected patient in which minocycline showed considerable improvement.

ABSTRACT

Background: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon inflammatory and ulcerative disorder of the skin. It may be associated with immune deficiencies. It is usually located in the extremities and its appearance after reduction mammoplasty is exceptional. We report three patients with the disease. A 54 years old female subjected to a bilateral reduction mammoplasty with an inferior pedicle. She developed a pyoderma gangrenosum and was treated with systemic steroids and local application of Dapsone with remission of lesions and healing after one month of evolution. A 23 years old women subjected to the same surgical procedure, which developed a wound dehiscence with ulcerative lesions, was treated with steroids and Azathioprine, reducing the local inflammation but leaving a severe esthetic sequel. A 21 years old woman subjected to the same surgical procedure, develop bilateral wound dehiscence and ulcerative lesions, she was treated with steroids and antimicrobials achieving a secondary healing...


Introducción: El Pioderma Gangrenoso es una enfermedad poco frecuente, de difícil diagnóstico y manejo. Puede estar asociado a otras enfermedades, en donde la alteración de la respuesta inmune es común. Su presentación por lo general corresponde a lesiones ulceradas de la piel ubicadas con frecuencia en las extremidades, siendo su presentación en las mamas excepcional; y mucho más rara su relación post mamoplastía de reducción. Métodos: Se realizó una revisión de pacientes sometidas a mamoplastía de reducción con pedículo inferior, asociadas al desarrollo de pioderma gangrenoso post-quirúrgico, durante un período comprendido entre los años 2000 y 2011. Resultados: Se recolectaron 3 pacientes, se describen sus casos clínicos con respecto a esta ubicación, analizando su presentación, evolución y manejo de la enfermedad. Discusión: La presentación del pioderma gangrenoso post-quirúrgico en relación a la mamoplastía de reducción comparte ciertas similitudes, las cuales deben orientar al diagnóstico precoz y de esta forma evitar manejos erróneos que pueden ser deletéreos, secuelantes e incluso potencialmente mortales...

ABSTRACT

Introdução: A cocaína é extraída das folhas do arbusto da coca (Erythroxylon coca), podendo ser consumida de várias formas, mas o modo mais comum é pela aspiração da droga, sendo absorvida pela mucosa nasal, causando vasoconstricção, levando o seu uso crônico à perfuração de septo nasal. Pioderma gangrenoso é uma doença inflamatória rara, idiopática que se caracteriza pela presença de úlceras destrutivas principalmente em membros inferiores. Seu diagnóstico clínico é muitas vezes de exclusão. Objetivo: Descrever a raridade de associação entre Pioderma Gangrenoso e cocaína. Relato de Caso: E. A., 27 anos, com apresentação atípica de Pioderma Gangrenoso com perfurações de septo nasal e palato duro usuária de grande quantidade de cocaína, sendo necessário diferenciar qual patologia causou esse dano.

ABSTRACT

Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare neutrophilic disease of unknown origin that is associated with systemic diseases in 50% of cases. It is characterized by erythematous-violaceous nodular lesions that quickly progress to painful ulcers, with undermined edges, necrotic-hemorrhagic, varying in size and depth, located mainly in the lower limbs. Extracutaneous locations of pyoderma gangrenosum are rare, usually involving the lungs; the main differential diagnosis in these cases is Wegener granulomatosis. We report a case of pyoderma gangrenosum, which showed multiple cavitary lung nodules, with good response to high doses of steroids. Once excluded the possibility of Wegener granulomatosis, the authors concluded that it was the manifestation of systemic pyoderma gangrenosum with pulmonary involvement.


Pioderma gangrenoso é doença neutrofílica rara de etiologia desconhecida, que se associa a doenças sistêmicas em 50% dos casos. Caracteriza-se clinicamente por lesão nodular eritematoviolácea ou pústula que progride rapidamente para úlcera dolorosa, de bordas irregulares, fundo necrohemorrágico e localização preferencial nos membros inferiores. Manifestações sistêmicas do Pioderma gangrenoso são raras, envolvem geralmente os pulmões e o principal diagnóstico diferencial nestes casos é a granulomatose de Wegener. Relatamos um caso de paciente portador de pioderma gangrenoso que apresentava múltiplos nódulos pulmonares cavitados, com boa resposta a altas doses de corticoterapia. Uma vez excluída a possibilidade de granulomatose de Wegener, os autores concluíram tratar-se da manifestação sistêmica do pioderma gangrenoso.

ABSTRACT

Pioderma gangrenoso es una patología inflamatoria crónica, poco frecuente, de probable etiología autoinmune. Se asocia en 50 por ciento de los casos a múltiples enfermedades sistémicas. En su forma clásica, se presenta como una lesión ulcerativa, dolorosa, habitualmente en extremidades inferiores. El diagnóstico es clínico. La histología es inespecífica, pero permite descartar otras patologías como infecciones o neoplasias. No existe hasta el momento un único tratamiento efectivo para esta enfermedad. Los corticoides sistémicos en dosis continua o en pulsos, son efectivos en la mayoría de los casos. Se reserva el uso de inmunosupresores para los casos refractarios a tratamiento. Las nuevas terapias biológicas han mostrado buenos resultados, especialmente en pacientes con enfermedad inflamatoria intestinal asociada.


Pyoderma gangrenosum is a chronic inflammatory disease of probable autoimmune etiology. It is associated in 50 percent of cases to multiple systemic diseases. It usually presents as a painful ulcerative lesion. The legs are most commonly affected. The diagnosis is based on the clinical presentation. The objective of biopsy is to rule out other causes of ulceration, such as infections or malignancies. There is no specific and uniformly effective therapy for this disease. Systemic corticosteroids, administered continuously or in pulses, have been an effective treatment in most cases. We reserve the use of immunosuppressant for cases refractory to treatment. New biological therapies have shown good results, especially in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.

ABSTRACT

Pioderma gangrenoso é uma doença inflamatória imunomediada e rara da pele, de diagnóstico extremamente desafiador. A evolução clínica é a base para o diagnóstico, cursando com lesões pustulosas superficiais, halo eritematoso doloroso, rápida progressão para ulcerações dolorosas eestéreis, sem resposta a antibióticos ou a novas intervenções cirúrgicas e, finalmente, com pronta melhora com uso de imunossupressores. O atraso no diagnóstico pode acarretar numerosas internações e terapias prolongadas, sendo que, seu reconhecimento precoce, por outro lado, evita a progressão dessas ulcerações e sua morbidade. Relatou-se um caso de pioderma gangrenoso que evoluiu após cirurgia associada à radioterapia intraoperatória no tratamento conservador do câncer de mama, fazendo-se uma revisão de casos relatados na literatura e suas possibilidades terapêuticas. Questiona-se também se a radioterapia intraoperatória estaria relacionada com algum estímulo imunomediado, o que poderia ter facilitado o desencadeamento do quadro.


Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare immune-mediated inflammatory disease of skin, which diagnosis is extremely challenging. The clinical course is the basis for diagnosis, coursing with superficial pustular lesions, erythematous halo, rapid progression to painful ulcerations and unresponsive to antibiotics or surgical interventions, and finally, with immediate improvement with the use of immunosuppressant.The delay in diagnosis can result in numerous hospitalizations and prolonged therapy, and its early recognition, moreover, prevents the progression of these ulcers and its morbidity. There was reported a case of pyoderma gangrenosum that developed after surgery associated with intraoperative radiotherapyin conservative treatment of breast cancer, making up a review of cases reported and their therapeutic possibilities. One may wonder also if the intraoperative radiotherapy would be associated with some immune-mediated stimulus, which could have facilitated the onset of the condition.

ABSTRACT

O Pioderma Gangrenoso é uma doença inflamatória da pele, cuja apresentação mais comum é através de úlceras necróticas nos membros inferiores. Seu diagnóstico clínico muitas vezes é de exclusão. Desde sua descoberta em 1930 até os dias atuais, ainda não há tratamento específico baseado em evidências sustentadas por estudos controlados e randomizados.Esta é uma revisão literária seguida de relato de caso de uma mulher de 41 anos, com Pioderma Gangrenoso na forma pustulosa e clássica, com boa resposta ao tratamento com Clofazimina, Azatioprina e Prednisona.


Pyoderma gangrenosum is an inflammatory disease of the skin which usually presents necrotic ulcer in lower limbs. Most of the time, there are no means of diagnosis but exclusion. Since its discovery in 1930 to nowadays there are no specific treatments based on evidence supported by randomized controlled trials. The authors make a literature review followed by a case report of a 41 year old women with pyoderma gangrenosum pustular type with typical presentation, treated successfully with Clofazimine, Azathioprine and Prednisone.
