Infected pressure and diabetic ulcers.

Abstract

Infected pressure and diabetic ulcers are encountered frequently by clinicians caring for the geriatric population. These infections are polymicrobial and are often complicated by sepsis syndrome and osteomyelitis. Together, these infections account for significant morbidity and mortality in elderly persons. A team approach to management is essential for the clinician, and efforts should focus primarily on prevention.
