Abstract

Reported here is a 2-year-old girl who was diagnosed to have thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia during evaluations for her bilateral neurosensorial deafness. Besides reporting a new mutation on the gene SLC19A2 for the first time in the literature, we highlight the recognition of this syndrome-when megaloblastic anemia and diabetes mellitus coexists-and the role of thiamine replacement for the treatment of both disorders.
