Diabetic foot infection is a common, complex, and costly problem, which requires careful attention and coordinated management, preferably by a multidisciplinary foot-management team. Optimal management of diabetic foot infection based on adequate diagnosis should reduce the incidence of infection-related morbidities. Unfortunately, however, diabetic foot infection is frequently inadequately diagnosed. This may result from a lack of understanding of diagnostic approach for diabetic foot ulcers, which is different from that of acute wounds. The issue of osteomyelitis in diabetic foot infection is particularly complex and problematic and is thus sealt with separately. The purpose of this review is to present diagnostic guidelines associated with diabetic foot infections. (J Korean Wound Care Soc 2007;3:53-57)
