The purpose of this study was to clinically examine the development of endodontic flare-up following endodontic intervention in control and in diabetic patient group. In the present study, overall incidence of inter-appointment flare-up in diabetic patients was found to be 19% whereas in non-diabetic group, incidence was 8% that was almost half to the diabetic group.
