#2223 Diagnostic Dilemma in a Patient with Recurrent Hypoglycaemia: An Unusual Case
Introduction: Recurrent hypoglycemia is a part of Whipple’s triad and usually points towards insulinoma as a cause. Presence of metastasis is uncommon in Insulinoma, and other causes should be ruled out.

#192 Successfull Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Alcoholic Ablation of Insulinoma

#1063 Hypoglycaemia in a Patient with Glucagonoma-Coincidence of a Glucagonoma and Insulinoma in a Patient with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type I
Introduction: We report the case of a 54 year old female with a known MEN1 syndrome with primary Hyperparathyroidism, a Prolactinoma and a pancreatic tumor. The patient complains about episodes of fatigue and sweating, both symptoms improve immediately after a meal.

#1101 Malignant Insulinoma in a Patient with Diabetes: Response to Treatment and a Return to Insulin Injections
Introduction: A 64 year old male with a fourteen year history of diabetes had been treated with insulin for eight years. Over a four week period he noticed that his insulin requirements were reducing and he experienced episodes of symptomatic hypoglycaemia and upper abdominal pain. Following referral a CT scan was performed which revealed numerous liver metastases and a 8.4 by 5.2 cm mass replacing the pancreas. Liver biopsy diagnosed a neuroendocrine tumour with a MIB-1 index of up to 18%. The tumour was somatostatin receptor positive as evidenced by an octreotide scan.
