Diabetic muscle infarction (DMI) is one of the unusual complications of poorly controlled diabetes. It is usually seen in association with other microvascular complications. This condition is reported rarely, probably due to it's under recognition. It is also seen in patients with chronic kidney disease and should be considered in patients presenting with acute onset of limb pain. Here we present two cases of DMI in dialysis patients and discuss the available literature to highlight the clinical characteristics of the cases. We also present a diagnostic algorithm to discuss evaluation of dialysis patients presenting with limb pain.
