PG is a T cell mediated disease directed against follicular adnexal structures.

PYODERMA GANGRENOSUM (PG) is a debilitating ulcerative skin disease commonly associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and malignancy.

In our recently published manuscript on PG we put forth the hypothesis that PG is caused by an autoimmune attack directed against follicular adenexal structures.  Please see the following link to read the article.
