Title: Painful limb of the severely hyperglycemic-An unrecognised complication of diabetes mellitus
Biography: Nivedita E
We describe a case of a 55-year-old male with a 10 -year history of type 2 diabetes mellitus, who was presented to our casualty with complaints of sudden onset of left thigh pain and swelling. On evaluation, his blood sugars were found to be elevated, his glycosylated haemoglobin value was high, ESR was raised, CK value was 1800 U/L. We made a presumptive diagnosis of pyomyositis and initiated intravenous antibiotics, but he showed no improvement. Blood and tissue samples were examined for microorganisms and demonstrated no white blood cells and no organisms. Then an MRI of the limb was considered for further evaluation.
