Description The pandemicity of diabetes mellitus (DM) has always been a challenging concern for oral and maxillofacial practitioners which got aggravated by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. DM is an independent risk factor for COVID-19 morbidity and mortality; on the other hand, COVID-19 outbreak has deteriorated the access of diabetic patients to palliative care and limited their outdoor activities and their nutrition. Similar to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), COVID-19 is strongly associated with altered glycemic levels thus leading in some cases to new-onset diabetes. In accordance with the CARE guidelines, we aim to report the characteristics of twenty-one consecutive diabetic type-2 COVID-19 patients who presented to our department from April to August 2020 with throbbing craniofacial pain.
