Ecthyma gangrenosum is a cutaneous manifestation of systemic infection caused predominantly by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We report a case of ecthyma gangrenosum in a child caused by P. aeruginosa who had been previously unsuccessfully treated with systemic antibiotics. A four years old boy presented with the complaints of fever and ulcers on the trunk and extremities. He had been initiated on systemic antibiotics without sending or awaiting reports of blood and skin swab culture and sensitivity.doi:10.7241/ourd.20181.8 fatcat:c3yihtbqafec3cy3jayyrmnxli
