Abstract

We report two cases of fulminant type 1 diabetes in previously well migrants from South East Asia. This entity, which is rare outside East or South-East Asia, has a high perinatal mortality. The clinical presentation differs markedly from that of typical newly recognised type 1 diabetes in pregnancy. In both our cases, the neonates required intensive care but survived.
