Type 1 diabetes mellitus is considered a common form of diabetes mellitus in young people. Type 1 diabetes in infants is rare. However, the condition is rare in infants. Type 1 diabetes has not been reported in the literature in 45 days old child of an Indian population. Type 1 diabetes typically begins between the ages of 7 and 13 years, but 1–3% of patients are under 1 year of age. This communication describes a case of type 1 diabetes in a 45 days old male child which presented as diabetic ketoacidosis. It was effectively managed with continuous intravenous regular insulin infusion. The present report is made because of the rarity of the condition in the early age group of Indian children.
