Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is rare in children. We report a case of PG in a 4-year-old male who presented with ulcers over face, axillae, and gluteal area. The ulcers healed with cribriform scarring after starting systemic steroids and azathioprine. The patient, however, was unable to follow-up regularly. He had a recurrence of lesions developed sepsis and septic shock and unfortunately expired.
