Diabetic foot infections: evaluation and management.

Author information

  • 1Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.


Management of diabetic foot infections requires a thorough knowledge of the pathophysiology involved, the associated microbiological characteristics, and current diagnostic and treatment regiments. Management of the infected diabetic foot requires a combination of therapies including antimicrobial agents, surgical drainage, local wound care, and avoidance of weight-bearing. The complexities of this problem often require the input of multiple specialists working cohesively to manage the concurrent complications of the disease in general, as well as the foot lesion in particular.
