Caption: Hand wound. Image 1 of 3. This 89-year-old woman has been on long-term steroid use for rheumatic disorder. One of the common side-effects of long-term topical steroid use is the thinning of the skin, increasing the likelihood of tearing (lacerating) it. This injury got infected, despite being cleaned and dressed by a nurse, and needed a course of antibiotics to treat it. See M330/1613 and M330/614 for the wound's subsequent infection and treatment. Also see M330/1608-1612 for a series of images showing this injury being dressed,.
