UNLABELLED Hyperinsulinism (HI) of infancy is a neuroendocrine disease secondary to either focal adenomatous hyperplasia or a diffuse abnormality of insulin secretion of the pancreas. HI with focal lesions can revert by selective surgical resection in contrast to the diffuse form, which requires subtotal pancreatectomy when resistant to medical treatment. Neuroendocrine diseases are a heterogeneous group of entities with the ability to take up amine precursors and to convert them into biogenic… CONTINUE READING
