Abstract

Nine patients with the syndrome of juvenile diabetes mellitus and optic atrophy exemplified the wide range of manifestations of this syndrome. The disease may occur as a recessively inherited or sporadic disorder and tends to have multi-system involvement. Hearing loss, diabetes insipidus, and evidence of cerebellar or central vesitbulo-ocular dysfunction are common.
