Abstract

We describe a case of neonatal diabetes due to a homozygous mutation (c.3 G>T) at the INS gene, leading to lack of insulin expression and severe hyperglycemia from day one of life requiring permanent insulin replacement therapy. The genetic loss of endogenous insulin production likely led to lack of immune tolerance to insulin, with resultant autoantibody production against exogenous insulin and progressive immune-mediated lipoatrophy at injection sites.
