Wolcott–Rallison syndrome (WRS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the association of permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus, spondylo-epiphyseal dysplasia with growth retardation and early tendency to skeletal fractures. Fewer than 60 cases of this have been described in the literature with variable multisystem clinical manifestations. The functional limitations or rehabilitation management has not been considered in the treatment outline of the recorded cases. This case report documents the functional limitations and rehabilitation challenges in a 15-year-old male child with Wolcott-Rallison syndrome.
