Abstract

Two previously healthy Malaysian women presented abruptly with severe diabetic ketoacidosis during pregnancy and immediate postpartum period. Their clinical courses, biochemical and immunological profiles were consistent with fulminant type 1 diabetes first described in the Japanese. Fulminant type 1 diabetes may not be as rare as currently reported outside Japan.
