    Abstract

    We report on a Japanese family with hereditary pancreatic hypoplasia, diabetes mellitus, and congenital heart disease. The disease was apparently inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. The patients in this family had no major anomalies other than those of the heart and pancreas. To our knowledge, this combination has not previously been reported.
