Abstract

In this longitudinal study of 1666 persons with diabetes, there was an observed trend toward an increased risk for amputation (χ2 test for trend, 108.0; P < .001), higher-level amputation (χ2 test for trend, 113.3; P < .001), and lower extremity-related hospitalization (χ2 test for trend, 118.6; P < .001) with increasing infection severity. The Infectious Diseases Society of America's foot infection classification system may be a useful tool for grading foot infections.
