The clinical and laboratory findings in six Jamaican infants with the exomphalos-macroglossia-gigantism syndrome are described. The incidence was calculated as 1:13,700 births. There was no family history of similar disease in any case and no evidence of chromosomal abnormality, virus infection, or infantile hypoglycemia. Three infants died, and two showed typical histological features in the kidneys and adrenal glands.(AU)

A survey was conducted in a rural district of British Guiana among the 2 major racial groups. A total of 5,126 persons over the age of 14 were tested. A total of 105 diabetics was found and of the these 71 were uncovered during the study. The overall incidence of diabetes was found to be 2.04 percent, the East Indian male and African female being particularly prone to the disease. The role of obesity, multiparity and foetal gigantism was studied. In the African population cerebral haemorrhage and diabetic coma were the leading causes of death while pulmonary complications and coronary thrombosis accounted for most of the deaths in the East Indian population (AU)
