Abstract

Ketosis-prone diabetes includes heterogeneous disease groups characterized by provoked or unprovoked ketoacidosis (ketosis), with a typical phenotype of autoimmune type 1 diabetes. As the incidence of obesity and type 2 diabetes is universally increasing, the rate of type 2 diabetes in diabetic ketoacidosis in children and adolescents is exptected to increase rapidly. The clinical presentation of atypical ketoacidosis with type 2 diabetes has been reported mostly in adults. We recently experienced a case of a 10-year-old obese girl with new-onset type 2 diabetes who initially presented with severe diabetic ketoacidosis, and introduce it with literature reviews.
