Abstract:  The author is affiliated with a pharmacy that services two different hospice groups in San Angelo, TX. He describes experience with two patients treated with a compound containing ketoprofen, lidocaine, aloe vera, phenytoin and misoprostol in an emollient base. The first patient was a 48-year-old woman suffering from end-stage multiple sclerosis who suffered from stage 4 decubitus ulcers on her left foot and left buttock. The second patient was a 67-year-old bedridden diabetic suffering from a large stage 4 ulcer to the left shin. Both treatments were successful in reducing the area of the ulcers. In the case of the second patient, when treatment began, the patient was a candidate for amputation. Due to the excellent results of the treatment, it was decided to surgically close the wound and finish it with a skin graft.
