Rosskopf, Andrea B; Loupatatzis, Christos; Pfirrmann, Christian W A; Böni, Thomas; Berli, Martin C (2019). The Charcot foot: a pictorial review. Insights into Imaging, 10(1):1-13.

Abstract

Charcot foot refers to an inflammatory pedal disease based on polyneuropathy; the detailed pathomechanism of the disease is still unclear. Since the most common cause of polyneuropathy in industrialized countries is diabetes mellitus, the prevalence in this risk group is very high, up to 35%. Patients with Charcot foot typically present in their fifties or sixties and most of them have had diabetes mellitus for at least 10 years. If left untreated, the disease leads to massive foot deformation. This review discusses the typical course of Charcot foot disease including radiographic and MR imaging findings for diagnosis, treatment, and detection of complications.
