Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of disability and mortality of people of all ages and sexes in many countries of the world, including Ukraine and diabetes mellitus is one of the leading risk factors of their development. The presented clinical case, in our opinion, demon­strates a possible outcome of such a serious disease as obliterating atherosclerosis of arteries of lower extremities in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus due to the lack of early diagnostic of diabetic and atherosclerotic vascular lesions. Despite the implementation of the adequate complex therapy, it is not always possible to avoid an amputation of the affected limb. Thus, the basis of modern medical and social assistance should be the early diagnosis and prevention of this pathology.
