Actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor is back in a Los Angeles hospital to have part of her leg amputated.
Publicist John Blanchette said doctors examined a growing lesion on Gabor's leg.
They decided she needed to return to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre for surgery.
The 93-year-old Hungarian-born actress broke her hip in July and has been in hospital several times since.
She asked for a priest to read her the last rites in August.
