Abstract

Two-hundred-and-fifty patients with juvenile diabetes mellitus aged 3-38 years, were examined for trigger finger. Thirteen patients (5%) were found to have trigger finger - 10 women and 3 men aged 14-38 years (mean 26 years). The ring, middle fingers, and thumb were the most affected. Two patients had bilateral trigger finger. There was a significant correlation between duration of diabetes and trigger finger (p<0.001) but no correlation with the control of diabetes. Our work indicates for the first time the prevalence of trigger finger in young patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.
