six months duration,middle aged woman,diabetic and hypertensive,ulcers present both hands and feet,kindly provide dd..Thanks in advance



Dr Vasudha Since nails are normal, I can rule out vascular occlusion as a cause. Sensory loss associated with tophic ulcer would also be my view. Must be old case of Hansen's left undiagnosed.

Thank you sir

In my 4 decades of medical practise ,I have seldom come across ,diabetic sensory nueropathy of hands in Indian set up ,but western literature revealed so. But Diabetic sensory nueropathy in lower limbs are very common ,and so the ulcers. In this case old treated Hansen is to be ruled out . This case may be syrngomaylia is to be ruled out .Go for CT sacn of brain stem and cervical spine.. There are humpten causes of sensory nueropathy ,one by one one should rule out.Even nutrition based is to be thought off.

Hansens disease look for anesthesia. Peripheral nerve thickening Glove and stocking anesthesia Whether from birth

DD Congenital sensory neuropathy.

Feet ulcer look like trophic/ chronic traumatic, while hand ulcers look more like of vascular pathology. I suggest, rule out leprosy first, get cbc, lipid profile, thyroid profile, RFT,serum globulin : albumin ratio, and importantly get autoimmune work up . and if vegetarian get serum vitamin b12. @Dr. Vasudha Varada , ma'am u should rule out autoimmune and leprosy in this patient. And treat accordingly.

And strict glycemic and htn control, and prevent trauma and secondary infection.
