In brief: Extremely rare
Ecthyma gangrenosum is the skin disorder (infected skin with ulcers) seen with severe cases of pseudomonas bacteria infection.
It is a rare disorder, and affects patients who are immunocompromised, especially with low white blood cell counts. There are a few cases in which the disorder has occurred in normal persons, so it is possible for one who is not sick to be unlucky and get e. Gangrenosum.
