Diabetes Mellitus type 1 is commonly seen in pediatric age group. The genetic and hereditary background plays a very important role in the disease. Evidence from clinical studies to understand the relations between diabetes and immune compression is not conclusive. The reason for this include incompletely defined abnormalities in cell mediated immunity and phagocyte function associated with hyperglycemia and also less vascular perfusion of the tissues. Diabetes mellitus is associated with increased rates of infections. Diabetic patients have more frequency and severity of infections. High serum glucose levels aid the colonization and also growth of a variety of organisms. With this background there is a need to study and understand the secondary bacterial infections seen frequently in Diabetes Mellitus.
