Non-islet cell tumor-induced hypoglycemia is a rare cause of hypoglycemia (1). Mesenchymal and epithelial tumors account for most cases (2, 3). A 60-year-old man with a palpable abdominal mass (computed tomography scan, 12 16 16-cm lesion, retroperitoneal) presented with neuroglycopenia responding to iv glucose. A fasting test confirmed symptomatic hypoglycemia (plasma glucose, 2.3 mmol/L within 4 h). Plasma levels of insulin (0.2 mU/L) and C-peptide ( 10 pmol/L) were suppressed, excluding… CONTINUE READING
