Charcot Foot

Overview

    • Look For

      Progressive destruction of bones and joints of the foot with fracture, dislocation and subluxation.
    • Inflammation (early) - erythematous, swollen, warm, tender foot
    • Deformity - most commonly manifesting as midfoot collapse (rocker-bottom foot)
    • Ulceration - overlying the deformity
    • Significance

    • Secondary to peripheral neuropathy with inciting trauma. Two-thirds of patients with Charcot foot suffer from diabetes.
