Case report: Non-invasive management of Madura foot with oral posaconazole and ciprofloxacin.


PMID 25349373

Abstract

Madura foot is a chronic infection caused by fungus and/or bacteria. Traditionally, treatment has been surgical debridement or amputation. Non-invasive management with long-term antimicrobials alone has been reported as successful. We report a case of Madura foot in a Somali refugee successfully managed with oral posaconazole and ciprofloxacin.
