Erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum: METHODS Definitions and inclusions (Part 2)
For the patients with either erythema nodosum or pyoderma gangrenosum, a clinical consultation from specialized dermatologists was usually obtained for confirmation of the skin disorder. Most often, this consisted of clinical examination only, although some patients had routine cultures and, sometimes, skin biopsies performed. No other patient with erythema nodosum and/or pyoderma gangrenosum had any other superimposed ‘reactive’ cutaneous disorder associated with Crohn’s disease, including the clinical spectrum of neutrophilic dermatoses sometimes associated with Crohn’s disease.

Two men in this series had both erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum at separate times during their clinical courses. In one patient with severe colonic disease diagnosed at 27 years of age, this developed postoperatively in peristomal skin after a partial colonic resection with a residual rectal stump. In one woman in this series with erythema nodosum, diagnosed at 43 years of age with Crohn’s disease, superimposed metastatic cutaneous Crohn’s disease with granulomatous change was histologically defined in a separate lesion on her posterior thigh.
