- Dermatologic manifestations of diabetes are common and come in numerous forms.
- Skin findings may help diagnosis diabetes (e.g. acanthosis nigricans) or reflect long-term complications of diabetes (e.g. necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum [NLD]).
- The dermatologic manifestations may be due to deposition of advanced glycosylation end-products (AGEs), infectious etiologies, autoimmune conditions, or related to pharmacological therapy for diabetes (i.e. insulin).
- Often, skin manifestations reflect other co-existing conditions such as dyslipidemia.
