Synopsis

Pyostomatitis vegetans-pyodermatitis vegetans (PSV-PDV) is a rare inflammatory disorder that is often associated with underlying inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), particularly ulcerative colitis, and less commonly with primary sclerosing cholangitis. Mucosal manifestations are characteristic of PSV-PDV. About half of patients develop cutaneous lesions in addition to oral lesions. Men are more frequently affected than women, and patients are usually age 20-60 years when diagnosed. The onset of bowel disease can precede this mucocutaneous disease by years. PSV-PDV may also be a marker of subclinical disease.

The pathogenesis of PSV-PDV is poorly understood.
