Case of the week: DM Foot v2.0

In tradition of my case of the week posts. I am posting another wound on a foot. This time its not just any ordinary non-healing wound from an injury but of a diabetic patient.

The photo on the left was taken last Jan. 11, 2012 and on the right was taken Jan. 27, 2012.

Patient is now compliant with oral meds (metformin and others) and was placed on iv antibiotics for 1 week. Also, daily wound care is done to promote healing and tissue repair. Photo now shows positive signs for improvement.
