Abstract

In patients with diabetes, glucose fluctuations, insulin resistance, poor circulation, and likely immune damage can easily lead to infections. Splenic abscess is rare in diabetic patients and is associated with a high mortality rate. Type 2 diabetes causes increased risks of splenic abscess, and timely and effective treatment can lower the mortality rate. We report here a case of type 2 diabetes complicated by multiple splenic abscesses.
