Caption: Diabetic ulcer. Close-up of the sole of the foot in a diabetic patient, showing an infected ulcer. At centre, the ulcer is open and exuding pus; above it a sinus has developed under the second toe; two toes have been amputated. Foot ulcers in diabetic patients are usually due to inadequate blood supply to, or drainage from, the limb. This is known as peripheral vascular disease, typically due to atherosclerosis ("hardening of the arteries") which is more common in diabetic patients. Poor blood supply may also slow the healing of an infected ulcer. In diabetes, the peripheral nerve system may also be affected (neuropathy) leaving the foot insensitive.
