Charcot Foot Causes
Charcot foot occurs in people who have numbness in their feet and legs. This loss of sensation is the result of a type of nerve damage called peripheral neuropathy.
Charcot foot is most closely associated as a rare complication of diabetes, but peripheral neuropathy is associated with several conditions. These include:
- Alcohol use disorder
- Drug abuse
- Infection, trauma, or damage in the peripheral nerves.
- Parkinson's disease
- Inflammatory conditions, such as sarcoidosis or psoriasis.
