Description:This patient presented with a pyodermal lesion located on the base of the penis. Note the crusty, centrally-located scabby region, surrounded by an erythematous, inflammatory halo.
Pyoderma involves the formation of a purulent, necrotic, pus-filled skin lesion, which usually forms as a rather deep lesion. Therefore, these long-standing lesions can often lead to scarification due to the involvement of the deep stratum germinativum, and dermal tissues.
