A case of 45-years-old male patient with a large non-healing ulcer over right leg is reported. Patient was a known case of chronic liver disease and was having multiple underlying problems. The ulcer was not responding to conventional treatment for more than one month. This non-healing ulcer was treated simply by local application of three percent citric acid ointment every day for a month, which led to complete healing of the ulcer without any complications.
