Abstract


Insulinoma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas that produces insulin in an uncontrolled fashion. Due to high circulating insulin levels in the blood, patients will often, if not most times, present with neurological symptoms. Symptoms can range in severity depending on the degree of hypoglycemia. In the most severe form, patients can experience seizures and coma. In less severe cases, they can present with fatigue, confusion, weakness, change in personality. Symptoms that resolve with food intake is a traditional hallmark. This hallmark diagnostic criteria should alert the health care provider to this diagnosis when a patient presents as such.
