  • Diabetes Mellitus

    This has encouraged provision of community mobile podiatry services [11].[] Search terms used included "diabetes mellitus," "peripheral vascular disease," "distribution of disease," "angiography," "computed tomography angiography," and "magnetic resonance[] (fatal or nonfatal stroke), peripheral vascular disease (amputation of at least one digit or death from peripheral vascular disease), and microvascular disease (vitreous[]

  • Obesity

    The risk of the severe and sustained lower extremity venous stasis disease in severe obesity is pretibial ulceration and cellulitis.[] Kaplan, Vivienne Patricia Madden, Todor Mijanovich and Ellenrita Purcaro, The Perception of Stress and its Impact on Health in Poor Communities, Journal of Community Health[] […] and carbuncles Extremity: Venous varicosities, lower extremity venous and/or lymphatic edema Miscellaneous: Reduced mobility and difficulty maintaining personal hygiene See[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    A variety of conditions result in lower extremity edema, such as deep vein thrombosis, cellulitis, venous stasis insufficiency, and congestive heart failure (CHF).[] Poor coordination of care: CHF patients saw six or seven different providers for various services, and they often failed to communicate with each other.[] These include patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ( COPD ), peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, erectile dysfunction and older adults.[]

  • Cellulitis

    Objective To characterize the national health care burden of misdiagnosed cellulitis in patients admitted for treatment of lower extremity cellulitis.[] Examples of co-morbidities that result in lymphatic flow changes include peripheral vascular disease, liposuction, radiation therapy, lymph node dissection, and lymphedema[] The prognosis is generally good, but the condition can return, especially in people with poor circulation, chronic (long-term) swelling in the legs or skin that is in poor[]

  • Tinea Pedis

    Semel and Goldin describe 24 episodes of lower extremity cellulitis in 22 patients, 20 of which had tinea pedis [ 12 ].[] […] showers and changing rooms People who are more at risk of tinea pedis include those who are immunocompromised, who sweat excessively (hyperhidrosis), and those who have poor[] vascular disease, or immunocompromising conditions.[]

  • Cellulitis of the Face

    The lower extremities are the most common site for cellulitis, but any part of the body can be involved.[] The prognosis is generally good, but the condition can return, especially in people with poor circulation, chronic (long-term) swelling in the legs or skin that is in poor[] If an older adult has certain medical conditions such as diabetes or peripheral vascular disease, or an impaired immune system, he is at an increased risk for complications[]

  • Onychomycosis

    Onychomycosis may predispose patients to lower extremity cellulitis.
