Abstract

Chronic venous stasis ulcers and HIV represent 2 prevalent disease processes in the urban wound care setting. To best serve our patients, it is important that the wound care team carefully consider the impact of comorbidities and consider use of nutritional interventions. In this article we report the use of the anabolic agent oxandrolone to successfully treat an HIV-positive man with stasis ulceration.
