The Mauriac syndrome in florid form is an almost extinct disease. Its reappearance occurred in a 13-year-old diabetic girl. The classic features, including hepatomegaly, dwarfism, protuberant abdomen, moon-shaped face, and Cushingoid fat deposition, diminished after control with long-acting insulin and proper dietary management.
