Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus is a common chronic health problem with microvascular complications such as neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy in the pediatric population throughout the life. Screening of these complications should be done regularly, and appropriate preventive strategies should be followed. We present a 17 year old Type 1 diabetic patient who admitted to the hospital with the complaint of unhealed wound of his toe. An integrated and personal care of his clinical status revealed that he had diabetic microvascular complications including diabetic foot, neurogenic bladder, retinopathy, cataract and nephropathy.
