Diabetes has been linked with malignancies like colon, rectum, liver, biliary tract, pancreas, kidney, leukaemia and melanoma. Melanoma can sometimes manifest as a diabetic foot ulcer.We describe an elderly male with Type 2 diabetes, who had presented to us with a non-healing wound at the right heel, that later turned out to be an invasive malignant melanoma.

Key words: Diabetes, Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU), Melanoma.
