I first encountered acute wounds, leg ulcers and factitious wounds (dermatitis artefacta) while working in dermatology as a research fellow and lecturer in Liverpool. The usual practice for the department was to treat leg ulcer patients twice a week as outpatients. This was in the early 1980s, just when the ‘modern era’ of moist wound healing was getting underway, and we were still using paste bandages, dry dressings, and silver nitrate solution to ‘treat’ overgranulation.
