This has been called Charcot Arthropathy, and it is a form of arthritis that affects patients with peripheral neuropathy. The typical symptoms are a red hot, swollen foot. It usually happens to the middle of the foot and presents with pain to the area. This is unusual for patients that typically did not have pain previously. Diabetes is often the underlying cause of peripheral neuropathy. Also, chronic infections may be involved.

Charcot is a progressive disorder that is characterized by three stages of the disease process: acute, coalescent, and chronic. During the acute stage, there is a red hot swollen foot that is painful.

If an infection is involved, usually other symptoms will slowly develop.
