    A 13 year old girl who had had transient neonatal diabetes developed permanent diabetes. She had raised fasting insulin concentrations suggestive of insulin resistance with a suboptimal insulin response to glucose loading. Both her mother and sister had profound insulin resistance; neither had clinical diabetes. This is the first time inherited insulin resistance has been implicated in the pathogenesis of permanent diabetes developing after transient neonatal diabetes.
