    Abstract

    A case of thermographic assessment in a patient with known diabetic Charcot's arthropathy is described in which significant heat around the affected ankle joint was detected in multiple views of the affected limb. In addition, elevated heat attributed to local skin inflammation was found at the heel of the contralateral limb. Care is needed in interpreting elevated temperatures in contralateral comparisons where multiple pathologies may be present.
