Abstract

Diabetes because of its diverse effects on the lower extremity via vascular, neural and immunological affects can mask the local and systemic signs of infection, potentially misleading and delaying the diagnosis of infection especially in those with foreign body injuries. Accurate and prompt diagnosis of these anomalies is vital in the early management thus preventing further complications. Careful clinical assessment and imaging modalities are central to the diagnosis, which will help identify radiopaque and radiolucent objects and infections. These help in the better management of foot complications and contribute to better outcomes.
