Thank you for your patience. I have reviewed the biopsy and it basically states that the wound on your foot has a fungal infection in it. This is what the conclusion was, now a fungal infection can develop in a pre existing wound or can also cause a wound to develop in patients who are immunocompromised. Considering that you have been using steroids in the past it is possible that you have a fungal infection in the foot as a result of that use.

Now your doctors suspected that you could have an autoimmune disorder like lupus or demratomyositis however the biopsyrevealed this to be a simple fungal infection however they did state that it can be reviewed later on if the symptoms persist after treatment with anti fungal drugs. Secondly they also stated that you also have a problem with the veins in the legs as the biopsy revealed that there are early signs of venous stasis which indicates that the veins are not returning the blood to the heart as efficiently as they should. This would lead to collection of blood in the veins which in turn can cause darkening of the skin as well as swelling.

So basically this biopsy reveals that you have afungal infection in the foot which can be treated with anti fungal medications.
