Abstract

Diabetes mellitus, characterised by persistent hyperglycaemia and glucosuria, was diagnosed in a six‐week‐old kitten. Pancreatic sections contained low numbers of atypically small islets and immunohistochemistry demonstrated pancreatic endocrine insufficiency with virtually no production of any islet hormones. There was no inflammatory infiltration of the islets, as seen in the form of diabetes mellitus characteristic of juvenile humans.
