Suresh Kumar Pichakacheri, DiabCare India, Diabetes Speciality Hospital, Nadakkave, Calicut 673011, Kerala, India Email:

The article ‘Guinea-worm (Dracunculus medinensis) infection presenting as a diabetic foot abscess: A case report from Kerala1 is being retracted based on a letter received from the Director of the National Centre of Disease Control, New Delhi where the centre has objected to the identification of the guinea-worm by the authors only on the basis of morphological observation, without any microscopic and histopathological examination. The author has agreed to the objection and to the withdrawal of the article. This article is therefore being retracted.
