Abstract

Ecthyma gangrenosum is a cutaneous gangrenous disorder which usually follows Pseudomona aeruginosa infection and is found mainly in immunosuppressed children. We describe a case of a five-year-old female with leukemia with a severe perineal ecthyma gangrenosum resulting in a cloaca- like deformity. One year later a perineoplasty with puborectalis interposition and overlapping external and sphincteroplasty was successfully performed, achieving satisfactory continence.
