The patient is a 65-year-old male who had a history of at least 20 years of diabetes and high blood pressure. Walking with inappropriate shoes for long period of time caused an extensive wet necrosis in the outer surface of the right foot; little toe No. 5, with redness; swelling and infection in the position. It had been condidated for a Below-knee amputation in any other clinics which they referred to.
Treatment Method: After minor amputation where only a toe (No.5)was removed ( as it does not affect walking at all), 50 sessions of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, receiving appropriate antibiotics, debridement and special daily dressing, all the problems of the patient have been resolved and now he is able to walk.
