Abstract

New-onset DM or unmasking existing one, with or without metabolic complications, has been reported in SARS CoV-2 infection. New-onset DM in association with HHS alone or combination with DKA is uncommon but a possible manifestation of SARS CoV-2 infection that poses management challenges where the outcome may be worst.
