abccess of lower leg on MRI

 This abcces was not what I expected when I first saw it. The entire lower leg was red and extremley sore to the touch. there was an open wound where the abccess had been drained the night before but it was small compared to the amount of  involvement of the entire lower leg. This patient is diabetic and therefore at risk for infection or a non-healing wound.
