Pyoderma gangrenosum is an inflammatory disease characterised by massive destructive infiltration and secondary vascular damage. It is often associated with other diseases, especially inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis. The disease can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms and course are often confused with other types of ulcer.

The aim of the study was to present clinical aspects of pyoderma gangrenosum, including diagnosis, treatment, and management in advanced nursing practice. The study comprised literature analysis, using the resources of the ScienceDirect, PubMed, and Termedia databases. The search criteria comprised the following keywords: pyoderma gangrenosum, management, wound care. Pyoderma gangrenosum is still a clinically difficult and often misdiagnosed disorder, and it poses serious challenges in patient care.Further research should be undertaken to find effective treatments for pyoderma gangrenosum.
