Infections of the foot are a common source of morbidity, disability, and potential limb loss. A large proportion of lower extremity infections occurs in the setting of diabetic neuropathy, with or without circulatory compromise, and are potentially preventable with regular surveillance. Adequate diagnosis and treatment of foot infections can be challenging. Successful treatment is dependent on factors such as etiology; vascular, neurologic, and immune status; and the identity of the offending organism.
