The authors deal with the clinical picture of total remission in diabetes, among young patients (below 30 years). In their interpretation "complete remission" means total withdrawal of insulin treatment for at least 2 months. Out of 14 patients with complete remission, the classified 7 patients--by clinical and immunogenetical parameters--as noninsulin-dependent diabetes in the young (MODY-NIDDY). 1 diabetic patient belongs to the autoimmune-subgroup of IDDM. The remaining 6 patients could be classified as IDDM-s. However their clinical and immunogenetical parameters were rather atypical. In conclusion they raised the possibility that this subgroup is heterogenous with in IDDM.
