Introduction
There are reports that diabetes mellitus reduces the risk of aortic aneurysms and many reports that diabetes mellitus reduces the risk of abdominal aortic aneurysms. In earlier years there were also studies that did not demonstrate any effects of diabetes on the rate of aortic aneurysms.

Material and methods
For the year 2012, between 1 January and 31 December, reports for services regarding treatment for aortic aneurysms were found. At the same time, the reports for services associated with diabetes with the main diagnosis of “diabetes mellitus” were found in National Health Fund databases for 2012 with the special determinants.

Results
In Poland in 2012 the mean incidence of aortic aneurysms in both sexes in the group of subjects with diabetes calculated per 100,000 subjects with diabetes was 167.78 ±49.10, and the mean incidence of aortic aneurysms in both sexes in the group of subjects without diabetes calculated per 100,000 of the general population after subtracting the number of subjects with diabetes was 27.72 ±9.40. The incidence of aortic aneurysms among subjects with diabetes was significantly higher (p < 0.001) than the incidence of aortic aneurysms among subjects without diabetes.

Conclusions
Aortic aneurysms were more frequently observed in the group of patients with diabetes than in those without diabetes. Aortic aneurysms were observed three times more frequently in men than in women. In Poland in 2012, 27.20% of patients diagnosed with aortic aneurysms also had diabetes.
