Caption: Ulcer. Large ulcer on the leg of a patient due to varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins that become tortuous and twisted due to poor blood flow. This can lead to areas of tissue dying due to a lack of oxygen. Such areas may become infected, especially in people with weakened immune systems. Wounds such as this require extensive surgery.
