Skin Demarcation and Amputation Level for Foot Gangrene Following Meningococcal Septicemia

A case report of a 55-year-old woman who was being considered for bilateral below knee or Syme’s amputations after gangrene at the level of both forefeet due to meningococcal septicaemia is described. An expectant approach for 6 months revealed that the tissues deep to the necrotic skin were viable and she was subsequently able to mobilize independently with normal footwear after bilateral toe amputations at the metatarsophalangeal joint levels.
