Skin and Soft Tissue Complications

Several cutaneous disorders and infections are more common in diabetics (Iable,,2.09-8). Serious infections usually develop due to the combination of poorly controlled serum glucose, vascular insufficiency, and tissue hypoxia. These infections may spread rapidly with dramatic skin changes. The most common sites are lower extremities, but such infections may occur on the peritoneum, scrotum, and abdominal wall (especially at sites of penetrating trauma or surgery). They all require emergent, aggressive medical and surgical treatment. Hemodynamic support and correction of ketoacidosis and/or hyperglycemia is often required.
