Boipsy result
My wife's biopsy showed PYODERMA GANGRENOSUM. It is apparently associated with any of the following: INFLAMMATORY BOWEL, HAEMOTOLOGICAL MALIGN, OCCULT TUMOURS. Could you please translate into English and perhaps give a short comment on each. Are we to be worried? Please be straight. Thank you!!

Dear Bully,
They don't really know what causes Pyoderma. The reason they associate it with these diseases is because people with these diseases tend to get more pyoderma lesions. They think it has to do with your immunity turning against your own body. Ask your doctor to do a Full blood count and ESR test - if it is normal, you don't really have to be concerned.
