Abstract

Aim: The radiological lesions and neuropathic complications are common in Diabetes Mellitus (DM). Foot deformities may lead to abnormal pressure distribution and foot ulcers. The aims of this study are to examine neurological disorders of the lower extremity and the radiological deformities of the foot and to search if any correlation between neurologic disorders and radiological deformities exist in DM.
