    Pyoderma gangrenosum at the site of sternal marrow aspirate was observed in a patient with acute myeloproliferative disease characterized by a high peripheral blood basophilia. Lesions with a similar appearance were also seen on the palate. No other disease known to be associated with pyoderma gangrenosum could be demonstrated. A review of the literature suggests that myeloproliferative disease should now be recognized as occurring in association with pyoderma gangrenosum.
