A 76-year-old male with a history of hepatitis B virus infection, ocular myasthenia gravis and constitutional thrombocytopenia underwent surgery for lung carcinoma in the middle lobe by means of video-assisted lobectomy. At the follow-up visit 7 days after surgery, he reported intense pain in the surgical wound. On examination, a lesion was observed with multiple pustules that had evolved to ulcers with raised purple edges (Fig. 1). The cultures were negative for bacteria, mycobacteria and fungi, and the pathology results confirmed the diagnosis of pyoderma gangrenosum (Fig. 2). The patient received treatment with oral prednisone, resulting in complete resolution of the lesion.
