The case of a 75-year-old woman presenting with Felty’s syndrome whose course was complicated by mucocutaneous lesions clinically typical of pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is described. Currently the literature has depicted only two cases where PG was observed in patients with Felty’s syndrome. This report summarises the current literature on pyoderma gangrenosum, Felty’s and rheumatoid arthritis, focusing on the general nonspecific and diseasespecific skin changes, histopathology, investigations and treatment options. A need for a multidisciplinary team approach?
