Sari J Priesand, Crystal M Holmes
The case of a 62-year-old Caucasian man with type 1 diabetes who developed malignant transformation of an area of prior diabetic foot ulceration (DFU) is reported. He had significant hallux valgus deformity, multiple episodes of healing and breakdown, and eventual transformation to verrucous carcinoma (VC). This case report highlights the malignant transformation of a site of previous DFU to VC, which, to the best of the authors' knowledge, has not yet been described in the literature. There has been little research performed that examines VC in the diabetic population...

INTRODUCTION: Pediatric patients develop mucositis when receiving treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation; the most common and sensitive is oral mucositis. Mouth rinses containing antimicrobial, antihistamine, and analgesic medications are the mainstay for pediatric patients; however, patients often refuse these rinses due to the taste or texture. Also, patients under 1 year of age are unable to use these products. OBJECTIVE: Herein, the improvement of oral mucositis with standard oral care and additional use of active Leptospermum honey in pediatric oncology patients after chemotherapy is demonstrated...

Cutaneous ulcers tend to become chronic and have a profound impact on quality of life. These wounds may become infected and lead to greater morbidity and even mortality. In the past, larvae (ie, maggots) of certain common flies (Lucilia sericata and Lucilia cuprina) were considered useful in ulcer management because they only remove necrotic tissue while promoting healthy tissue in the wound bed, thus helping wounds heal faster. Recently, maggots from several other fly species (Calliphora vicina, Calliphora vomitoria, Phormia regina, Chrysomya albiceps, Sarcophaga carnaria, and Hermetia illucens) have been shown in vitro to possess characteristics (ie, debridement efficacy and putative antimicrobial potentialities) that make them suitable candidates for possible use in clinical practice...

Murad Karadsheh, Josh Nelson, Benjamin Rechner, Richard Wilcox
Optimal wound healing with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) relies on a properly sealed vacuum system. Anatomically difficult wounds impair the adhesive dressing, which results in air leaks that disrupt the integrity of the NPWT system and hinder wound healing. OBJECTIVE: The authors demonstrate a new technique using a cyanoacrylate-based tissue adhesive to maintain an airtight, durable seal in NPWT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 52-year-old woman with a degloving injury to the right thigh extending into the groin, resulting in massive necrosis, presented to the emergency department...
