The features of 6q24-related transient neonatal diabetes mellitus (6q24-TNDM) include severe intrauterine growth restriction, hyperglycemia that begins in the neonatal period in a term infant and resolves by age 18months, dehydration, and absence of ketoacidosis.  6q24-TNDM is caused by overexpression of paternally expressed imprinted genes at 6q24.  This mechanism accounts for 40% of cases.
