Preface Pyostomatitis vegetans is an exceptional, benign, chronic inflammatory disease of mucous membranes demonstrating an insidious onset. Characteristically, the condition delineates an ulcerated oral mucosa exhibiting numerous pustules or exudative plaques with an elevated perimeter along with intraepithelial abscesses imbued with innumerable eosinophils. Pyostomatitis vegetans, an uncommon manifestation of inflammatory bowel disease as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, may simultaneously be associated with a cutaneous condition designated as pyodermatitis vegetans. Pyostomatitis vegetans is contemplated as an oral counterpart of pyodermatitis vegetans which appears to incriminate various cutaneous surfaces.
