Changing concepts of islet cell dysplasia in neonatal and infantile hyperinsulinism

Abstract

Neonatal and infantile hypoglycemia due to insulin excess has been associated with a spectrum of anatomic changes, i.e., nesidioblastosis, endocrine cell dysplasia, islet cell hyperplasia, and adenomatosis. The mechanism of hyperinsulinemia in these patients has been attributed to: (a) an increase in islet cell mass, (b) abnormal islet cell architecture… (More)
