Abstract

Leg ulcers, the cause of great morbidity, are a common malady. Diagnosis is sometimes difficult and inappropriate treatment may lead to serious consequences with the risk of amputation. The authors describe the basis for a simple diagnosis of these conditions as well as the usual medical therapy, with special attention to the local treatment of these lesions.
