Pyostomatitis vegetans (PV) is a rare disorder of the oral mucosa and the most common presents as multiple pustules. It is notoriously difficult to treat. It is consistently associated with inflammatory bowel disease and is consequently considered a highly specific marker. This report presents the case of a 10-yearold boy diagnosed with PV, in whom complete remission of the oral lesions was eventually achieved with topical tacrolimus.
