Abstract
Mutations in KCNJ11 cause majority of cases of permanent neonatal diabetes (PND). Multiple reports of PND with successful transitioning to oral sulfonylurea had been reported except for those with DEND syndrome. This case report highlights a case of successful sulfonylurea treatment in a patient with DEND syndrome.
