Recurrence of Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus After Transient Neonatal Diabetes: A Report of Two Cases

J Pediatr. 1993 Apr;122(4):598-600. doi: 10.1016/s0022-3476(05)83544-9.

Abstract

Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus developed in two patients with transient neonatal diabetes after more than 5 years without insulin therapy. The absence of islet cell antibodies and of the typical HLA types suggests that they may have a nonimmunologic form of diabetes.
