These include: •being obese (excessively overweight) •having a weakened immune system •having poorly controlled diabetes •having circulation problems •having chickenpox or shingles •having lymphoedema •having long-term untreated athlete’s foot or fungal toenail infection •intravenous drug use •having previous episodes of cellulitis These are briefly discussed below. 2015; 4(2): 1392-1401. Even something as small as a scratch or an insect bite allows bacteria to enter the skin, which may lead to an infection. Cellulitis often occurs on the legs. If it is left untreated, it can spread and become life-threatening.

Anurag Markanday FRCPC, Consultant physician in Infectious Diseases and Head, Department of Medicine, Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre, 32900 Marshall Road, Abbotsford, BC V2S 0C2 (anurag.markanday{at}fraserhealth.ca). This study used contingent valuation analysis to identify failure rates for treatment of diabetic foot osteomyelitis acceptable to infectious diseases consultants (IDCs). aureus, and anaerobes. During the next three days, Brian’s blood sugars were elevated and erratic. Amputation was less likely in patients undergoing combined surgical treatment (OR: 0.22; 95% IC: 0.08-0.59) than it was in those patients whose disease management was conservative. Two main issues complicate making a correct diagnosis of osteomyelitis in the diabetic foot [3].

Acute osteomyelitis refers to infection in the bone prior to development of sequestra, usually measured in days or weeks. The review had a number of limitations including a search strategy of English only manuscripts. Many surgical procedures can be performed in patients with diabetes and forefoot ulcers complicated by osteomyelitis while avoiding amputations. Nonetheless, how much bone needs to be removed, when it needs to be removed, and how long antimicrobial therapy needs to be continued, remain undetermined. As a surgically
