- Palisaded neutrophilic and granulomatous dermatitis (PNGD) is an uncommon skin eruption and characterized histopathologically by the presence of granulomatous inflammation with or without leukocytoclastic vasculitis. PNGD is known to be associated with various immune-mediated connective tissue diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus erythematosus. However, to our knowledge, a case of PNGD in a patient with Behcet's disease is extremely rare and only one case has been reported in foreign literature to date. Herein, we report an unusual case of a 60-year-old female with Behcet's disease who presented multiple erythematous to flesh-colored papules on the extremities, buttocks, and ear lobes and was diagnosed with PNGD. After the treatment of systemic corticosteroids, colchicine and azathioprine, the skin lesions and oral ulcers improved. The patient is under observation without recurrence of skin lesions for 6 months.
