Caption

Close-up of an infected arterial ulcer on the ankle of an 86 year old man with type 2 diabetes. The ulcer shows the 'punched out' appearance typical of arterial ulcers. Arterial ulcers are infected open sores caused by inadequate blood supply. Diabetes can compromise the circulation in the extremities. As a result, small injuries may become deep, chronic, infected ulcers, as the tissues have too poor a blood supply to heal properly.
