Abstract:   (5895 Views)
Thiamine Responsive megaloblastic anemia in DIDMOA (Wolfram) syndrome has an autosomal- recessive mode of inheritance . Megaloblastic anemia and sideroblastic anemia is accompanied by diabetes insipidus (DI), diabetes mellitus (DM) ,optic atrophy (OA) and deafness (D). Neutropenia and thrombocytopenia are also present. We report a 7 month old girl with congenital macrocytic anemia a rare clinical feature of Wolfram,s syndrome with increased plasma levels of blood glucose, both of which dramatically responded to administration of thiamine in large doses . The patient also had neurosensorial deafness, but no improvement was observed in the deafness. We presented the case because thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia is a rare clinical presentation of Wolfram syndrome and after institution of treatment with thiamine, the anemia and hyperglycemia returned to normal.
