Abstract

Burns affecting the foot in a neuropathic patient may be associated with significant functional impairment and prolonged recovery time. Although they occur easily, these injuries are rare. We report two patients with deep burns of the foot following the use of therapeutic footbaths for pressure ulcers in neuropathic patients.
