Abstract

The case of a girl, aged 12, is reported, in whom for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis - concomitant with uveitis - a short steroid treatment was performed. After steroid treatment, the diabetes became with the symptoms of a diabetic coma manifest. After the beginning of the insulin administration, an unusually long remission period followed, therefore the insulin was temporarily stopped. On the basis of the known relationship between juvenile diabetes and autoimmune diseases it is advisable - before the beginning of steroid treatment of auto-immune diseases - to perform intensive sugar metabolism examinations (glucose tolerance test).
