Lesion is a noun. If you add "ed" to the end: lesioned, it becomes an adjective.

It's rarely used, but 'lesion' or 'lesioned' (past tense) can be used as a transitive verb.


The knife lesioned his arm.


It isn't a verb that I would use. I would write:

The knife created a lesion on his arm.

"... lesioned his arm?! True enough, Lewis, but that's really digging. Transitive verb, indeed ;<)
