Wounds mean distruption of normal continuity of structures. Ulcers are excavations of the skin that reach at least to the deph of the dermis. Ninety- five percent of atypical ulcers manifest as one of the above mentioned entities. Other forms of chronic wounds represent atypical ulcers, which can be caused by autoimmune disorders, infectious diseases, vascular diseases and vasculopathies, metabolic and genetic diseases, neoplasm, external factors, drug related reactions, etc. The features of atypical ulcers are the following; difficult to recognize, pose problems in making an accurate diagnosis, and especially complex treatment. They are characterized by inflammation and infections caudes by rare agents from the enviroment, low virulence microbes, predominantly bacteria and fungi, multiple-resistant strains, opportunistic microbes. The diagnosis of atypical ulcers is very difficult. Althought a wound biopsy generally is recommended in the case of refractory, nonhealing ulcers or when wounds present with atypical signs and symptoms, little is known about the distribution of atypical ulcers. Molecular and histologic analysis of atypical ulcers have been suggested as a method to validate the use of debridment. The non healing edge contains cells with molecular markers indicative of healing impairment.
