CONTEXT Insulinoma is the most common functioning endocrine tumor of the pancreas responsible for fasting hypoglycemia resulting from autonomous insulin hypersecretion. Most insulinomas are small and difficult to localize with conventional imaging. We successfully localized a small insulinoma in our patient using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging before surgery.
