A 2-month-old premature infant was admitted to our pediatric intensive care unit because of severe Pseudomonas aeruginosa septicemia, in critical condition. A circular perianal lesion consistent with ecthyma gangrenosum developed and was treated conservatively. To our knowledge, the therapeutic dilemma between conservative and surgical management of this lesion has not been previously reported.
