Diagnosis and Treatment of Diabetic Foot Infections

IDSA GUIDELINES

Diagnosis and Treatment of Diabetic Foot Infections
Reprints or correspondence: Dr. Benjamin A. Lipsky, Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, S-111-GIMC, 1660 S. Columbian Way, Seattle, WA 98108-9804 (Benjamin.Lipsky@med.va.gov).

Executive Summary
1. Foot infections in patients with diabetes cause substantial morbidity and frequent visits to health care professionals and may lead to amputation of a lower extremity.
2. Diabetic foot infections require attention to local (foot) and systemic (metabolic) issues and coordinated management, preferably by a multidisciplinary foot-care team (A-II) (table 1). The team managing these infections should include, or have ready access to, an infectious diseases specialist or a medical microbiologist (B-II).
