Intraoperative ultrasonography has not been used previously to locate an insulinoma that was not surgically palpable or that could not be seen by selective arteriography. In this report we described a patient with an insulinoma localized to the pancreatic head identified by transhepatic portal venous sampling but not by selective arteriography or palpation. At operation intraoperative ultrasonography demonstrated an 8 mm tumor in the pancreatic head and guided the successful enucleation.
