MedlinePlus:34 Pressure sores are areas of damaged skin caused by staying in one position for too long. they commonly form where your bones are close to your skin, such as your ankles, back, elbows, heels and hips. you are at risk if you are bedridden, use a wheelchair, or are unable to change your position. pressure sores can cause serious infections, some of which are life-threatening. they can be a problem for people in nursing homes. you can prevent the sores by keeping skin clean and dry changing position every two hours using pillows and products that relieve pressure pressure sores have a variety of treatments. advanced sores are slow to heal, so early treatment is best.

MalaCards: Decubitus Ulcer, also known as pressure ulcer, is related to spinal cord injury and bacteremia. 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 spinal cord, skin and prostate.

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.
