Abstract

We document the first reported case of fulminant diabetes, without evidence of pancreatic islet autoimmunity, in Australia in a woman of Chinese Vietnamese background. Fulminant diabetes occurs primarily in Asia, particularly in Japan, but with widespread population migration clinicians need to be aware of this form of diabetes.
