Abstract
Mutations in the KCNJ11 gene, which encodes the Kir6.2 subunit of the ATP-sensitive potassium channel, often result in neonatal diabetes. We describe a female neonate who is a heterozygous for a new missense mutation, V252L, in the KCNJ11 gene and who has been successfully transitioned from insulin to sulfonylurea therapy.
