Abstract

The term "diabetes mellitus" does not only refer to one disease, but to a group of metabolic diseases characterized by chronic hyperglycemia. Besides these two main forms (type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus), there are a number of less known classifications that have specific characteristics and which should be known by non-specialist staff as well, for therapeutic and prognostic implications therefrom. This article provides a review of the current information about etiopathogenesis, epidemiology and therapy of these less common types of diabetes.
