Abstract:

A questionnaire containing demographic information, type of diabetes, duration of disease, and type of infection was completed for each patient. Data were later analyzed using SPSS software and chi- Square Findings: Of 656 patients, 126 cases (19.2%) suffered infection and the commonest infections involved were diabetic foot (52%) and urinary tract infection (26%).
Conclusion: Considering the data found in our study, attempts to immediately diagnose the type of infection in diabetic patients to reduce the rate of mortality are necessary.
