Make the Diagnosis: Aching Foot
Source: MedPage Today Rheumatology [2014.08.13]
(MedPage Today) -- Case Study: A seventy-four-year-old woman presented with right midfoot and hindfoot pain. Clinical and radiographic evaluation showed midfoot arthritis and chronic tendinopathy of the Achilles tendon. Medical history included severe wound complication following cholecystectomy twenty years prior. Preoperative blood test results were normal. Two days after complex right midfoot fusion and Achilles tendon reconstruction, the foot was moderately painful with severe swelling. Blood tests showed leukocytosis and an increased CRP level. Infection was considered, and six days after surgery, a debridement was performed. Antibiotic therapy was started after the biopsy, but the lesion spread rapidly. Repeat debridements were performed, but the ulcerations became deeper, and the skin borders became necrotic, as shown here. The implants were removed and the Achilles tendon was resected. The biopsies of the lesion showed an unspecific leukocyte infiltration. All bacteriologic cultures were negative, and immunology and hematology tests were normal. The patient received a latissimus dorsi myocutaneous flap transfer. Ulcerated lesions occurred at the donor site, and a graft infection occurred.
