The life and iconography of St. Peregrine Laziosi, as patron of the wounded people, ask us to think again about our way of dealing with the ulcerated patients. The mainstream way of thinking of the modern medicine call for an holistic approach to the person: the spiritual dimension is to be considered as important as the psychological one. The illness—the symptom “skin ulcer”, in particular—forces the patient to search for a rational guiding and supporting him. All we ought to do for the patients we care, is to attend them, taking into account a number of elements which, even tough considered only in a sketchy way by the medicine, are by no means of great substance.
