Orthopaedic surgeons, particular foot and ankle surgeons are frequently asked to assist with the treatment of patients with lower extremity ulcerations and infections related to diabetes and/or vascular disease. The case report presents the history and clinical images of a patient with diabetes and multiple medical co-morbidities who presented with bilateral lower extremity ulcerations and dry gangrene of the glans penis. This case is presented because it is a striking example of the end-organ effects of diabetes and associated vascular disease.
