Abstract

Wegener's granulomatosis is multi-systemic disease characterized by granulomatous necrotizing vasculitis and it usually affects upper and lower respiratory tracts. Cutaneous manifestation as an initial presentation is unusual and comprises about 15% of cases. The most frequent skin lesions are palpable purpura, papules, ulcerations, vesicles, subcutaneous nodules, necrotizing ulcerations. We report a patient with Wegener's granulomatosis who presents as a pyoderma gangrenosum.
