Four patients were described in whom gangrenous areas of the foot were present. These patients were diabetics with peripheral neuropathy. In these patients the neuropathy was the important precipitating cause of the gangrene and the legs were saved in all 4 patients. These patients illustrate the improved prognosis in cases where gangrene is caused by neuropathy as distinguished from arterial occlusion.
