Abstract

The Alstrom syndrome is inherited autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by obesity, diabetes mellitus, pigmentary retinal degeneration, normal intelligence, sensorineural hearing loss, baldness, acanthosis nigricans, male hypogonadism, hyperuricemia and hypertriglyceridemia. There is no reported case of Alstrom syndrome in Korea yet. We experienced a 29-year-old female patient with clinical characteristics similar to Alstrom syndrome who was admitted due to poorly controlled diabetes mellitus and diabetic retinopathy with hemorrhage. We report this case with the review of literatures.
