SALSAism entry: Hammertosis Fugax

Our most recent SALSAism entry came by way of clinic today.

Hammertosis Fugax: A person with diabetes and blindness who develops a neuropathic wound on a contracted toe. This is not to be mistaken with Amaurosis Fugax, which is blindness due to transient retinal ischemia. The two may coexist, forming a dual fugue kind of oculodigital scenario.
