I've been trying to find what disorder this is but have no idea! This is the only thing the teacher gave us. Can anyone offer guidance for a helpless student in need :uhoh21:

When I first looked at it my first thought was that it was a burn because of the little striped pattern on the right big toe. The whole thing appears very symmetrical. If you look, the darkened areas follow parts of the foot that would normally be heavily calloused. It also looks like there might be some dehydration or something. The medial side of the inner feet look pink and healthy. I would tend to think that it's a burn of some kind. Initially, burns of the outer skin look black before the skin sloughs off or is debrided off. It looks to me as if the person might have stood on something very hot. A grill of some sort judging by those stripes on the toe? Whatever it is there's a real overgrowth and thickening of tissue on the sole of the foot.You have got to tell us what this turns out to be!

Looks like fungus to me. Shriveled feet from being moist in shoes. Neglected feet and the creases following the natural curves of tissue when wet.

Blackened areas appear too grainy-like to be burned tissue.

I blew up the piccy and saw the areas on the toes you pointed out, Day. Those did look atypical......

OK, this might sound a tad devious, but right-click on the teacher's picture and then left-click on "Properties." Then copy the website into the address bar and see where it takes you. :devil:

PS To me, it looks like the guy was walking on some fresh asphalt. I don't see any real burns on the feet, and I've never seen a fungus be so specific that it doesn't head straight between the toes, given a chance.

Yeah, me too. I even did a search on dermatological disorders. Fascinating pics but couldn't find that one.

I'll be the first to admit that dermatological conditions are not my strong point.

Well, what ever it is, I wouldn't touch it without having gloves on my hands. Eeww! I worked at a V.A. hospital and we had homeless guys dumped off at the doorstep all the time with all kinds of cooties and whatall all over them. It's sad to see, but it is a reality that patient's do show up with this kind of stuff.
