MalaCards: Decubitus Ulcer, also known as pressure ulcer, is related to meningitis and diabetic foot ulcers. An important gene associated with Decubitus Ulcer is NDUFS7 (NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone) Fe-S protein 7, 20kDa (NADH-coenzyme Q reductase)), and among its related pathways is FOXA2 and FOXA3 transcription factor networks. The compounds idpn and diflunisal have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and spinal cord.

Disease Ontology:8 Decubitus ulcer is a chronic ulcer of skin where the ulcer is an ulceration of tissue deprived of adequate blood supply by prolonged pressure.
