Diabetic myonecrosis: An underreported complication of diabetes mellitus

Indian J Endocrinol Metab. 2011 Jul;15(Suppl 1):S58-61. doi: 10.4103/2230-8210.83052.


Diabetic myonecrosis is an underreported complication of long-standing, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus which is usually self-limiting and responds well to conservative management. Patients frequently have microvascular complications, and although short-term prognosis is good, the long-term prognosis is poor. We report four cases of diabetic myonecrosis admitted in a tertiary care hospital.
