Defects of lateralisation have previously been recognised in the offspring of women with type-1 diabetes. In a 3-year period, three of the six cases of left isomerism sequence notified to the Northern Region Congenital Abnormality Survey were the infants of diabetic mothers. This finding suggests a specific association between bilateral left-sidedness and maternal type-1 diabetes.
