Poorly controlled diabetes is associated with an increased risk of infectious complications. With the increasing prevalence of diabetes, many more people are being looked after in primary care. We describe a case of pyomyositis, a potentially severe but uncommon complication of poorly controlled diabetes that was not recognised in the community. Clinicians looking after people with diabetes need to be aware that prolonged, unexplained symptoms need specialist assessment.
