Spontaneous muscle infarction in diabetic patients is a rare condition that usually occurs in those with advanced diabetic complications. Increased clinical awareness is important for early recognition, particularly in a diabetic patient presenting with a painful thigh or leg swelling. However, the disorder has received little attention in the rehabilitation medicine literature. Magnetic resonance imaging is the diagnostic choice of study, and in the appropriate clinical setting, may obviate the need for a muscle biopsy. We reported three patients with diabetic muscle infarction, review additional reported cases, and discussed the principles of diagnosis and management.
