Diabetes mellitus is a common disorder and presents in different ways. Shoulder pain is a common musculoskeletal complaint, especially in middle-aged or older-aged men. While it is widely accepted that diabetics have an increased propensity to develop infections, a diagnosis of osteomyelitis of the humerus as the etiology of constant shoulder pain might be delayed, as occurred in this case study, until patients' develop clear signs of infection. Here, we describe a case of subacute osteomyelitis as the first physical symptom of diabetes; the possibility of osteomyelitis should therefore be investigated in all patients with diabetes mellitus who develop joint or bone-related pain.
Key Words: Diabetes mellitus, Humerus, Osteomyelitis
