In contrast to the autoimmune type 1 diabetes, patients with monogenic diabetes due to KCNJ11 mutations do not have pancreatic auto-antibodies at onset. Here we describe a patient diagnosed at the age of 12 weeks that showed ICA at diagnosis, yet has been tested with positive result for KCNJ11 mutation.
