Diabetes mellitus is mentioned by Giffin and Bowler1 as being one of the diseases which may be associated with anemia. Joslin2 in a series of six thousand diabetics observed five instances in which diabetes mellitus and pernicious anemia co-existed. Adams3 found three such cases in a five year period, during which time two thousand patients with diabetes mellitus and one thousand patients with pernicious anemia were observed. Wright4 found two instances out of 475 patients with diabetes mellitus and 84 patients with pernicious anemia. Goudsmit5 reports five cases out of a total of 1063 cases of diabetes and 379 cases
