Abstract

The study was carried out on eight patients with clinical presentation of non-traumatic painful swelling of lower limbs & were examined with high resolution Ultrasound probe of 12 MHz on Logic 700 expert series, with average patients age of about 37 years with H/O of uncontrolled diabetes Mellitus, showed discrepancy of circumference / thickness of Calf muscles compared to the opposite normal lower limb with areas of low echogenicity & one patient showed areas of necrosis / abscesses in muscle planes. All were diagnosed & latter confirmed on biopsy as Diabetic muscle infarctions with superadded inflammation.
