Abstract

A 4-month-old female infant presented with widespread pyoderma gangrenosum associated with stridor, presumed secondary to tracheal involvement. No underlying cause was revealed despite extensive investigation. Treatment with immunosuppressive agents only partially suppressed disease activity. Complete resolution followed treatment with infliximab. We review this rare condition in infants and discuss treatment with infliximab not previously described in this age group.
