We report a series of patients with transient neonatal diabetes mellitus (TNDM). Paternal uniparental isodisomy of chromosome 6 and heterozygous KCNJ11 and ABC88 mutation were the mutations found. This first reported series of Brazilian patients expands the geographical data on TNDM contributing to better understanding of its pathophysiology.
