A 20-year-old man presented with a history of a motor vehicle crash that had resulted in a traumatic below-the-knee amputation of the left leg. There were scaly, red plaques on the distal part of the stump that had arisen within weeks of the injury. Before presentation, he underwent 2 revisions of the amputation, incision and drainage procedures, antibiotic therapy, and treatment with a vacuum-assisted wound closure device. Notably, at the time of presentation, he had not yet been fitted for his prosthesis because of persistent ulcers in the affected area.
