Chinese Abstract

English Abstract

We report the case of a 21-year-old female with Alstrom syndrome who also suffered from acute pancreatitis of obscure manifestation. The patient had underlying cone-rod dystrophy of the retinas, nystagmus, obesity, progressive sensorineural hearing impairment, diabetes mellitus, and hypertriglyceridemia, compatible with the clinical diagnosis of Alstrom syndrome. Serial examinations showed liver dysfunction and pancreatitis. In treating a patient with poor communication (i.e. cone-rod dystrophy and hearing impairment) suffering from acute illness, understanding the underlying disease and the potential for pancreatitis with hypertriglyceridemia is necessary. It is also a challenge to treat a patient with multiple system involvement. In conclusion, Alstrom syndrome is a disease of systemic multi-organ involvement, and hepatic disease and pancreatitis, possibly due to dyslipidemia, appear to be manifestations of Alstrom syndrome.
