I missed this when it was on initially but found out there had been an item on leg ulcers on Channel 4′s “Embarrassing Bodies” Series 4 Episode 3.
The good news is that if you are quick enough, you can view it on-line via Channel 4′s On Demand (4OD). It may end up on other sites for example YouTube but after a quick search, it isn’t there at the moment. I say if you are quick enough because as of writing, it is only available for another 23 days. I am not sure if this works for others that are “overseas” i.e. outside of the UK.
This episode shows a young man who presents to them with a leg ulcer which is eventually diagnosed as a very rare case of Pyoderma Gangrenosum (some information can be found here). He shows a very nasty looking oozing ulcer on his left leg.
For those who can view it and don’t want to watch the whole programme (it is quite full on with some of the other people who attend and does contain nudity etc) the times when the ulcer is specifically dealt with are from 2.00 minutes to 5.13 then 30.25 – 32.43 and finally 41.00 – 43.50
