Abstract

Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN) of the foot/ankle is a devastating complication that can occur in neuropathic patients. It is a progressive and destructive process that is characterized by acute fractures, dislocations, and joint destruction that will lead to foot and/or ankle deformities. Early diagnosis is imperative, and early treatment may be advantageous, but the condition is not reversible. There is no cure for CN but only treatment recommendations. Ultimate goals of care should include providing a stable limb for ambulation and no ulcerations.
