Check their description, if it says "The fat on their [ect] is completely gone" then you have a winner.

No, that's not there, unfortunately.

Sounds like it's perfectly treatable, just need a good surgeon to remove all the rotten tissue. If the rot got in there bones they are beyond saving however.

I hate the ones that cause extreme bleeding, effectively bleeding dwarves dry seconds after exposure. Not much you can do against.

I like slow and painful death because of the way it turns your fort into a scene from The Hot Zone and gets your doctors to justify their continued existence.

Alright, one final step.
Use Magma Mist to remove their fat, as that will render them nigh invulnerable to flames, thus making them fire-proof, pain-resistant, dwarves.

Isn't magma mist toxic to anything that breathes it in?  I'm trying to make them invincible, not dead.

No, it's not toxic.
It burns stuff.
Edit: I lied.
It's toxic, too.
Still, extremely small doses of it should be fine..And there's just about no other kind of dose.
One per month should be enough, although this is still under experimentation, and so you may want to perfect it with less important dwarves.

Edit of the edit: Actually, apparently I was right the first time.

No, it only causes serious burns. The down side is that it requires a cave-in to create magma mist, and that will likely kill them or put them permanently in the hospital.

The syndrome code above will make the afflicted victim feel no pain, permanently.
Tested this in arena mode, the UberDorf was able to keep fighting, even with lots of broken bones.

The syndrome code below will permanently disable eyes, making for excellent siege operators:
[CE_IMPAIR_FUNCTION:SEV:30000:PROB:100:BP:BY_TYPE:SIGHT:ALL:START:0:PEAK:60]

This last syndrome kills anything that bleeds within a few steps:

I have officially made mini-dwarves, and they inject bite victims with a poison that destroys their eyes and pain receptors while rotting off their skin and fat.
