INTRODUCTION: Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic dermatosis that can be associated with irritable bowel disease, arthritis, monoclonal gammopathy, malignancy and myelodysplastic disease. Extracutaneous manifestations are rare and can present in the lung as nodules and cavitary lesions, or as pleural effusions. The main differential diagnoses of cavitary lung disease to consider are granulomatosis with polyangitis (Wegener’s), lung cancer, and lung abscess.
