We present a pediatric patient with ulcerative colitis who developed thrombotic cutaneous gangrene involving skin of the lower chest, abdomen, back, bilateral buttocks, bilateral thighs, perineum, and genitalia, ultimately resulting in autoamputation of the glans penis. After an extensive review of the literature, we describe the diagnosis and management of this devastating condition.
