Abstract: Charcot’s Neuroarthropathy (CN) is a serious pathology, with devastating impact on mobility and quality of life of the patient. Although its pathophysiology is not completely clear, it is related to sensory neuropathy, repetitive trauma, and increased expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Currently, Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is the disease most related to this pathology. The pathology begins with intense inflammation, associated with fractures and cumulative and progressive dislocations, mainly in the foot and ankle. At the end of the inflammatory phase, bone healing occurs, and the residual deformity is established. The objective of the treatment is to obtain a functional plantigrade foot at the end of the four clinical phases. The initial approach is to protect the foot in the inflammatory phase to avoid progression of the fractures and deformity. After the consolidation phase in case the patient does not adapt to the modification of footwear and orthotics, the surgical treatment for foot realignment should be indicated. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2022.
