Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Ulcer on the toe of a 74 year old man with non- insulin-dependent (type two) diabetes mellitus. He also has peripheral vascular disease. Ulcers such as this form due to an impaired blood supply to the affected area. The skin and surrounding tissues die, leaving the area open to infection. Treatment is aimed at the underlying cause. Antibiotic drugs and regular cleaning and dressing of the ulcer hasten its healing.

Release details: Model release available. Property release not required.
