Abstract

A case fulfilling the criteria for the diagnosis of diabetic amyotrophy is reported. Based on the clinical and electrodiagnostic features, it is concluded that diabetic amyotrophy is a recognizable clinical entity that can be differentiated from other diabetic neuropathies. The site of the lesion and the pathogenesis in diabetic amyotrophy remain controversial. The usual course of the illness is one of gradual improvement over weeks to months.
