Abstract

It is well accepted that Charcot arthropathy is most frequently encountered in the diabetic population. Also well known is the association between diabetes and osteoporosis, even in the absence of overt renal dysfunction. Is it plausible that Charcot arthropathy is a late sequela of osteoporosis in diabetic patients, and if so, can the osteoporosis be treated early, leading to a decrease in the ultimate prevalence of Charcot arthropathy? The objective of this paper is to concisely review the literature detailing the course of Charcot neuroarthropathy and to investigate the links between Charcot arthropathy and osteoporosis among diabetic patients.
