This patient has a serious neurological condition and was hospitalized for pneumonia. He developed what may have been a pressure injury on his left trochanter, but I think you can see from the appearance of this lesion that it’s not a simple pressure injury. Pressure injuries are not supposed to chase you around the room. This is classic PG, which certainly can be triggered by trauma.
