Morbidity and mortality stem from acute metabolic derangement and from long term complications that affect small and large vessels and infections. Sometime special type of infection can be the first presenting symptom of DM. Association of DM and infection can act as a vicious cycle. Infection cause uncontroled DM and resulted in uncontroled infection. With awareness of these problems and according to some references that "local and systemic infections are not more common in diabetic children" we decide to have a study about diabetic children.

The most rate of infection was in 7- 9 yr old. Fungal. infections were the most common type of infection. The most common infection was vulvovaginitis (17 cases) that 6 of them came with cc of vaginitis resulted in diagnosis of DM. UTI was the second infection and sinusitis was the third.
