Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a common metabolic disorder with many short-term and long-term complications. Filariasis is a disfiguring disease seen mostly in tropical countries and is often resistant to all therapeutic interventions. We recently encountered an interesting patient with type 2 diabetes along with massively swollen right limb. We highlight the relevant differential diagnosis and plan to educate the readers about the occurrence of filariasis in diabetes.
