Pyostomatitis vegetans is a rare condition characterized by pustules that affect the oral mucosa. It is consistently associated with inflammatory bowel disease and is usually resistant to treatment. We present the case of a 65-year-old white man with pyostomatitis vegetans that was associated with ulcerative colitis and adenocarcinoma of the colon. Fluocinonide gel resulted in a complete but temporary clearance of the lesions. Complete remission was achieved immediately after a total colectomy.
