We report a 16-year-old boy with cystic fibrosis presenting with meconium ileus in the neonatal period who showed mild clinical phenotype later. He had sufficient pancreatic function, mild lung involvement and borderline sweat chloride levels. Analysis of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator protein gene revealed the rare mutation: 2183AA-G/D1152H. To our knowledge, this is the first report concerning such a mutation combination in cystic fibrosis.
