Jacksonleg200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Disturbing photos obtained by ABC News show a seriously infected wound on Michael Jackson's leg surrounded by what one doctor calls "suspicious needle marks."

"It looks like there are multiple puncture points from IV placement," Dr. Debra Jaliman told ABC News of the photos reportedly taken in 2002.

The wound seen in the photos could have been the result of contact with highly caustic, acidic fluid that would burn the skin and cause it to turn black, the doctor said.

The doctor also noted various needle marks on Jackson's legs and said that placing an IV in a leg would be "very unusual."
