Abstract: Objective: To examine the association of common carotid intima media thickness (CCA-IMT) with risk factors of atherosclerosis in type 2 diabetes and hypertension patients. Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out in 14 type 2 diabetes; 15 hypertension and 15 control subjects. CCA-IMT and ankle brachial index (ABI) were measured by ultrasonography. Anthropometric characteristics of each subject were also taken. Results: type 2 diabetes group had higher mean CIMT values as compared to the other two groups. ABI was significantly inversely related to CIMT in type 2 diabetes and hypertension group. Conclusion: CIMT showed association with ABI and duration in type 2 diabetes and hypertension groups
