Chronic wound infection. Close-up of a chronically infected wound on the side of a patient's trunk, under the arm (top right). This is a surgical incision that split open and became infected. The surrounding tissue is inflamed and red, and yellow green pus has collected in the cavity. This patient had received a sympathectomy, an operation where a nerve is cut via an incision in the armpit in order to improve poor blood flow in the arm. This infected wound was plugged with antibacterial foam and bandaged to allow healing. See M330/447 for the same wound with foam dressing in place.
