Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare neutrophilic inflammatory skin condition which affects up to ten cases per million people per year. It mostly presents in the second to sixth decades of life with female preponderance. There are only a few reports of this condition following obstetric and gynecological procedures. The current article aims to highlight that PG should be kept as a differential in case of a nonhealing surgical site wound, misdiagnosis of which results in physical and psychological morbidity.
