Abstract

Cellulitis is a common clinical condition that is often inaccurately diagnosed. Risk factors
for the development of cellulitis include obesity, lymphoedema and lower limb ulceration.
It is important to accurately diagnose and effectively treat cellulitis in order to provide
cost effective care and reduce patient suffering. This article will deliver an overview on the
burden of cellulitis, provide information that will aid accurate diagnosis and summarise
current treatment options.
