One hundred and twenty three diabetic patients and 100 non- diabetic controls were examined for lesions of diabetic dermoangiopathy. Twenty two (17.9%) lesions, while simildr lesions were found in only 2 (2%) controls. Age of the patients with opathy was sipifirandy higher than those derm without dermopathy, and it was more common in the fifth to the seventh decade. No statistically siicant relationship could be established with the sex, type, serverity control or duration of diabetes, diatetic neuropathy, larize vessel disease like CAD, PVD or CVA or with metabolic complications of diabetes. However, a higher percentage (59.1%) of patients with dermopathy were found to have a poor control of their diabetes as compared to those without microangiopathy (50.7%). Dermopathy was also more common (23%) 9 the duration of diabetes was more than 5 years, than if it was less than 5 years (14.1%). The percentage (33.3% of patients with retinopathy having dermopathy. Rubeosis was seen in 4 (3.2%) patients.
