Hyperpigmentation and Thickening of Skin with Callosity Formation over Dorsum of Both Feet and Healed Ulceration over Left Lateral Malleolus in a Patient with Type 2 Diabetes Performing Prolonged Prayers
We describe such lesions in a 62-year-old Muslim patient with uncontrolled glycemia who practiced prolonged, repeated religious prayers in sitting position causing significant pressure over dorsum of both ankles. He developed prayer-induced callous formation on dorsum of both ankles, with more thickening and a healed ulcer on left. Prayer-induced skin lesions should be carefully managed in patients with diabetes, who are more vulnerable for infections and gangrene due to as venous/arterial insufficiency and peripheral neuropathy.
