Superficial granulomatous pyoderma is an uncommon, benign, superficial variant of pyoderma gangrenosum, having granulomatous histological features and no systemic association. We describe 6 Indian patients with superficial granulomatous pyoderma. In two patients, the ulcers developed due to traumatization of an existing scar. We would like to highlight that superficial granulomatous pyoderma must be considered margins, especially if it is situated at the previous site of a surgical trauma or burn scar. Recognition and differentiation of this condition from pyoderma gangrenosum is important as many of the investigations can be avoided and the condition can be managed quite easily by early treatment with systemic corticosteroid.
