1.  Ichthyosis
2.  Ischemic gangrene
3. Necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum
4. Phlegmasia cerulea dolens
5. Pyoderma gangrenosum

Make your diagnosis in the comment section and check back tomorrow for the answer.

Alright. It's your nerdy Atlanta colleague who loves when you post these. .. .(clearly I'm a nerd if I thought "ooohhh!" instead of "eeewwww!" when I saw this picture.)

I'm going with the ischemic gangrene from hell. Pyoderma is pretty gnarly stuff, but doesn't turn you all yucky and necrotic like that.

Ischemic gangrene, final answer.

Merry Everything!

I don't see the ulceration typically associated with pyoderma gangrene, so I'm going with ischemic gangrene.

I know you have to be careful with with a higher risk of getting gangrene when you are a diabetic so it is a hard guess. My first was #2 but it looks like it might also be #3 because of the dead skin.
