We report a 39 years old woman with Ulcerative Colitis unresponsive to medical treatment. A total colectomy with Brooke ileostomy was performed, as the first operation. After six weeks she developed a peri-ileostomic Pyoderma Gangrenosum. She was treated by a multidisciplinary team, and after seven months with local treatment and systemic medication, the skin healed. Her bowel transit was reconstructed later with an ileoanal pouch and she was reinserted into her previous job.
