Many patients with monogenic diabetes are missed or misclassified. Herein, we report a 28-year-old Indian female who developed diabetes at the age of 3 months. An audit of our type 1 diabetes database led to her genetic testing. A KCNJ11 mutation was identified and she was successfully switched to sulphonylurea.
