Abstract
We describe a family in which 3/6 siblings had transient, relapsing neonatal diabetes. The father and another sibling had diabetes diagnosed at 20 and 9 years old, respectively. All affected individuals carried the same KCNJ11 gene mutation. In all, sulfonylurea treatment permitted cessation of insulin treatment, with improved glycemic control.
