Abstract
A high prevalence of foot ulcers was confirmed among patients with diabetes, which are common indications for hospitalization, and usually associated with a long hospital stay with adverse outcomes including amputation and death. However, a diabetic hand is less recognized and is usually overlooked by clinicians. We see rare serials and case reports about a hand ulcer in diabetic patients. The aim of this case presentation is to explore clinical and treatment elements for a hand ulcer as well as a review of the literature.

Key words: Hand ulcer, diabetes mellitus, micro-trauma, cross finger flap
