J. Karalliedde, S. Vijayanathan and S. Thomas    

Abstract: Background  Macro- and microvascular complications of diabetes are varied and can present with a range of clinical signs and symptoms. Diabetic muscle infarction is a rare vascular complication of diabetes that is often not recognized.

Case report  We report a case of diabetic muscle infarction, where a 65-year-old woman with Type 2 diabetes presented with acute-onset severe pain in her right leg and foot drop.

Conclusions  Her foot drop was a result of a concomitant compression nerve injury as a consequence of the muscle oedema following infarction. Our case highlights the importance of early recognition and investigation of atypical presentations of vascular complications of diabetes.
