Diabetic neuropathy has varied clinical presentations. As clinicians we should be aware of the common as well as rare manifestations of this syndrome. Diabetic truncal neuropathy presenting as a painful pseudoabdominal mass can easily mislead clinicians who are unaware of this problem. Subsequently, this can lead to unnecessary investigations and discomfort to the patient. A good blood sugar control and judicious use of drugs for neuropathic pain along with physiotherapy usually gives good relief. It is mostly a self-limiting condition.
