Abstract: With the expansive use of immune checkpoint inhibitors, the frequency of immune-related adverse events, including autoimmune type 1 diabetes, has been exponentially increased. The anti-programmed death-ligand 1 antibody, avelumab, has recently been approved for metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma therapy. Here, we report a patient that developed fulminant type 1 diabetes during avelumab treatment. An 81-year-old woman with no history of diabetes received avelumab for metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma. Elevated plasma glucose level (483 mg/dL), hemoglobin A1c level (7.5%) and ketosis were observed after 10 courses of avelumab without any symptoms related to hyperglycemia. As the laboratory tests showed insulin depletion, we diagnosed her with fulminant type 1 diabetes induced by avelumab. This is the first reported case of avelumab-induced type 1 diabetes, illustrating the necessity for close monitoring of glycemic control during avelumab therapy, as well as other immune checkpoint inhibitors.
