What is your diagnosis?


A 34-year-old patient (gravida 4, para 2) in her 34th week of pregnancy underwent cesarean section (C-section) for nonreassuring fetal status due to clinical chorioamnionitis. Her medical history was unremarkable without inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, or hematologic disorders, and her previous pregnancies were uneventful. At 5 days postpartum, erythema appeared around the operative wound. Although antibiotics were started for a suspected wound infection, violaceous erythema and erosions developed at the periphery of the wound, gradually extending to form a surrounding ulcer.
