A Hispanic man, age 49, reported a three-year history of an enlarging painless ulcer on the plantar surface of his right foot. The ulcer began as a small fleshy bump that had opened and burst several times while continuing to grow. Occasionally, the lesion drained clear liquid, but it never became red, hot, or tender.
