Abstract

CASE REPORT:

We described the follow up of a patient with diabetes mellitus type 2 who had a macular pattern dystrophy and bilateral neurosensory hearing loss. Electrophysiological studies revealed abnormal pattern electroretinography and impaired electro-oculogram responses.

DISCUSSION:

Maternally Inherited Diabetes, neurosensory Deafness and generally macular pattern distrophy (MIDD syndrome), is a rare mitochondrial disease, responsible for approximately 0.5 to 2.8% of diabetes mellitus.
