The participant was first noticed to have short stature when she was 6 years old. Around 7-8 years old, she was found to have an abnormal eye structure (abnormality of the cornea morphology and corneal endothelium), hearing impairment (sensorineural), and a hand tremor. Her hearing impairment and tremor have worsened over the years.
When she was 21 years old, she was found to have diabetes mellitus that was initially diagnosed as type 2, but then changed to type 1.
