Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a common pediatric endocrine condition and Mauriac syndrome (MS) is described as one of the manifestation of poorly controlled diabetes. It manifests as hepatomegaly, growth delay, elevated liver enzymes, and serum lipids and glycogen accumulation in hepatocytes. We report a 7-year-old child of MS with poorly controlled T1DM. With appropriate management, the patient showed improvement symptomatically and in liver size. The fasting blood sugar and triglycerides showed a reduction.
