When suspicious bilateral lesions occur on prior hallux amputation sites
from Podiatry Today
A 56-year-old male initially presented to our clinic with an unusual ulceration under the plantar aspect of his right first metatarsal head stump where a hallux amputation had been performed. In fact, both first great toes had been amputated greater than five years ago secondary to osteomyelitis from ulcerations attributed to diabetic neuropathy. Since the amputations had been performed, the patient admits that he had ulcerations over each area. The former ulcerations had subsequently healed and not returned for a few years.
