Introduction: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), is a genetically heterogeneous connective tissue disorder associated with skeletal fragility, deformity, and growth deficiency. Intravenous bisphosphonate therapy is the mainstay of medical treatment of this condition. Given the paucity of data from Asia we sought to evaluate the genetic epidemiology and the response to pamidronate therapy in a cohort of Malaysian patients.Method: Genetic analysis was performed...

Background: Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) is a rare monogenic form of diabetes that result in β-cell dysfunction. MODY accounts for 2–5% of all diabetes cases. We presented here a family with MODY2 caused by a novel heterozygous p.L164I (c.490 C>A) mutation of the GCK gene.Case: A 15,5-year-old girl was admitted to our department because of fasting hyperglycemia. She had no polyuria, polydipsia and weight loss...
