Abstract: To examine the association of retinal vessel tortuosity with diabetic retinopathy and early nephropathy in type 1 diabetes. Cross-sectional. A total of 1159 participants with type 1 diabetes aged 12 to 20 years, attending diabetes clinics in Children's Hospital at Westmead, Sydney, Australia between 1990 and 2002, were included. Retinal photography and clinical examinations were performed during the baseline visit to assess diabetic retinopathy and albumin excretion rate (AER). Retinal vessel tortuosity was measured from digitized retinal photographs using a semi-automated computer program by a single grader masked to participants' characteristics. Diabetic retinopathy was defined as ETDRS level
