Abstract

This heavily exuding, sloughy ulcer was so painful that the patient had difficulty tolerating any physical contact with it. After treatment, pain levels subsided, so that she was better able to tolerate dressing changes, could sleep in her own bed instead of a chair, and started compression therapy.
