Inflammatory diseases including vasculitis, lupus, scleroderma or other rheumatological conditions also causes leg ulcers.
The goals of treatment are to relieve pain, speed recovery and heal the wound. Each patient's treatment plan is individualized, based on the patient's health, medical condition and ability to care for the wound.
