    Abstract

    Neonatal diabetes mellitus is an uncommon disorder of unknown cause that can be encountered in the first days to weeks of life. Two forms-transient and permanent-have been described. Signs and symptoms of both forms are identical with the ongoing need for insulin therapy past the neonatal period the only method to distinguish between them. This article describes the infant with transient neonatal diabetes and reviews the clinical characteristics of both the transient and permanent forms. The role of the nurse practitioner in the care and management of these infants is also addressed.
