Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is an uncommon ulcerative cutaneous disease, without any well-known specific and effective treatment. Here we report two patients with severe recalcitrant perineal pyoderma gangrenosum, successfully treated with low dose systemic tacrolimus. Tacrolimus can be a safe effective drug in the management of recalcitrant PG.


KEY WORDS: Pyoderma gangrenosum - Perineum - Tacrolimus
