Diabetic papillopathy is one of the signs of diabetic microangiopathy. Up to now several researchers have taken interest in this disease, providing various and sometimes clashing pathogenetical interpretations.

The Authors' survey is presented with particular attention to fluorangiographic aspects of papillary changes.
