Abstract

We detail the unusual occurrence of successive episodes of diabetic myonecrosis in both lower and upper limbs in a young woman with diabetic end organ dysfunction. We highlight the importance of recognising this as a differential diagnosis for acute limb pain in diabetic patients and advocate conservative measures for successful treatment and return to function.
