Charcot's Neuroarthropathyin Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patient

Made Adikosha Pranata [5] | I GustiNgurah Mayura

Abstract: Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN), also known as Charcot foot, is a devastating complication to diabetes. It manifests as an acute aseptic inflammation of bones and joints in the feet. If not diagnosed and treated in time, it may lead to collapse of bones in the foot. Management of Charcot foot is based on the acuteness of symptoms, anatomic location and degree of joint destruction. The management include pharmacologic and surgical treatment. The best treatment strategy for CN should be its identification and our focus should be on the prevention of its progression to an unstable foot deformity predisposing patients to ulcerations, infections, and amputations. As providers, our lack of education surrounding this subject is causing us to miss the best opportunity to have a profound impact on our patient?s lives. We report a female, 50 years old with Charcot footwith secondary infection and type 2 DM presented with wound of his right foot since 2weeks ago. History of DM since 8 years ago and was being treated with insulin. Education and our own self assessment should guide us to improve our awareness of the condition, our diagnostic accuracy and knowledge. As a result of this paradigmatic shift, we believe that placing a greater emphasis on education providers about CN would save limbs and lives.
