The doctors at Kamineni Hospitals, LB Nagar have successfully treated a 21-year-old woman from Khammam, who was diagnosed with autoimmune disease known as aseptic abscess syndrome with pyoderma gangrenosum.

Aseptic Abscess syndrome is an autoinflammatory disease with fever, abdominal pain, and abscesses usually involving spleen, liver and associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, doctors said.

On ultrasonography and other tests taken-up at Kamineni Hospitals, multiple abscesses in spleen were noted. “We did an ultrasound abdomen, skin biopsy, and basic blood tests. The patient was diagnosed with a rare condition that affects skin and internal organs severely called aseptic abscess syndrome with pyoderma gangrenosum. We administered steroid injections under strict monitoring,” senior dermatologist, Kamineni Hospitals, Dr. B Ramadevi, said.

Within two months, abscesses in the spleen resolved but the cutaneous ulcers were resistant to tablets. Hence, we had started biological injections (newer therapies) sequentially under strict supervision with follow-ups, which helped with her overactive immune system that was acting against her and the patient got back to her normal health status, Dr Ramadevi pointed out.
