A 49 year old female presented to our Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) centre with recurrent severe and disabling hypoglycaemia. She had previously been extensively investigated with a clinical and biochemical diagnosis of endogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia although the source of hormonal hypersecretion could not be localised with MRI, EUS and (111) In-Octreotide scans. After extensive discussion the patient opted for blind surgical resection undergoing a pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy in December 2010. Histological examination of the resected operative specimen demonstrated a normal pancreas with no evidence of neuroendocrine tumour. Consistent with this, post-surgery her hypoglycaemic symptoms persisted with fasting capillary blood glucose of 2.1-6.0 mmol/l with increasing hypoglycaemia unawareness. Consequently she sought alternative clinical opinions from two European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (ENETS) Centres of Excellence who investigated her collaboratively.
