    A sharply defined, deep cut out, non-healing ( no granulation tissue visible in the base) ulcer, located on the pressure point of the plantar surface of the foot, suggests that this is a 'neurogenic aka trophic ulcer'.

    The mechanism of such a ulcer is repeated injury or pressure in an area which has lost the appreciation of pain.

    The neurological conditions which predispose to formation of such an ulcer includes -
    1) Diabetes mellitus ( most common )
    2) Alcoholic peripheral neuritis
    3) Tabes Dorsalis
    4) Spina Bifida
    5) Leprosy
    6) peripheral nerve injury
    7) Paraplegia
    8) Syringomyelia
