Dear Editor,

We read with great interest the excellent article by Bhobe et al.[1] We applaud the authors on diagnosing and managing the rare entity but would like to make important additions.

Oral and ocular examinations should have been carried out in this case as the involvement of these sites is known in cases of pyoderma gangrenosum. The respected authors have stated that pyoderma gangrenosa was “First described in 1930 by Brunsting et al.,” but according to a study, this disease was first described in 1916 by Brocq and was later further elaborated by Brusting in 1930. Oral involvement in the form of aphthae may extend from oral mucosa to pharynx.[2] Second, ocular involvement in the form of nodular scleritis, orbital inflammation, eyelid involvements, and peripheral ulcerative keratitis is known.[3]
