Diabetes mellitus (DM) as a chronic disease could lead to micro- and macrovascular disorder. Also, some evidence demonstrated that pulmonary involvement is more frequent in DM patients than the healthy population. Hence, we tried to perform a systematic search to considering pulmonary disease among the DM patients. Articles were identified through searching databases including PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of Sciences, Embase, and Scopus from 2000 to 2016. We reviewed systematically all studies reporting pulmonary disease among the diabetic patients. A total of 452 relevant records were identified by the electronic search, of which a total of 19 studies were identified as eligible papers that were original articles for the frequency of pulmonary disease among patients with DM. The incidence of pulmonary diseases has reported among diabetic patients that TB was reported to have a higher frequency when compared to other pulmonary disorder in diabetic patients. Therefore, conducting further studies on these two disorders is recommended, particularly in regions where the incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly, and tuberculosis remains endemic.
