85歳の女性。内科外来通院中, 左第III指に皮膚潰瘍が出現し, 約1週間処置を続けられていたが, 全く変化が見られないため当科へ紹介受診となった。当科初診時, 左第III指DIP関節部に一致した境界明瞭な全周性の皮膚潰瘍を認めた。眼科用鑷子で潰瘍内部の組織を観察したところ, 輪ゴムが埋没していた。直ちに輪ゴムの摘出除去を行い, その後約3週間で潰瘍は治癒した。
An 85-year-old woman who was regularly treated at a nearby internal medicine clinic developed skin ulcer on the left middle finger. Since her condition remained unchanged despite about one week of treatment there, she was reffered to our department. During her first examination at our department, a skin ulcer with clear borders was noted over the entire circumference of the DIP joint of the left middle finger. When the tissue inside of the ulcer was examined with ophthalmologic forceps, a buried rubber band was discovered, which was removed immediately. Her ulcer cured about 3 weeks after the operation.
