Publication History

Published Online:


Diabetic lipemia, although common in type 2 diabetes, is rare in type 1 diabetes mellitus. It may manifest as lipemia retinalis, eruptive xanthomas, fatty liver, and pancreatitis. We describe a 6-year-old girl diagnosed with autoimmune poly­glandular syndrome type IIIa, who presented with diabetic lipemia manifesting as eruptive xanthomas. Probable metabolic derangements causing such severe lipid abnormalities and its treatment are discussed.

Keywords: autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type IIIa; diabetic lipemia; diabetes mellitus type II; eruptive xanthomas
