Summary :

The Charcot foot, a rare medical condition, defines a particular form of the diabetic foot, representing both a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.

In this article, we have combined some of our results with those retrieved from the literature in order to deliver several key messages dedicated to the everyday practice.
