Diagnostic strategies, malignancy predictors and long-term survival were retrospectively evaluated in patients with hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (64 insulinomas). Lower median glycemia was 30 (range 20-53) mg/dl [1.6 (1.1-2.9) mmol/l] with concurrent insulin of 48 (13.2-217) microU/ml and 15 (2-46) microU/ml measured by radioimmunoassay (RIA) and immunofluorimetric assay (IFMA), respectively. All patients with insulinomas had a positive prolonged fast within 48 h. Sensitivity of localization… CONTINUE READING
