#1295 Intra-Operative Portal Vein Insulin Assay Combined with Occlusion of the Pancreas for Complicated Pancreatogenous Hypoglycemia
Introduction: Pancreatogenous hypoglycemia is a rare endocrine disorder. The precise localization of hypersecreting tissue and determination of complete resection are two main challenges for complicated pancreatogenous hypoglycemia, such as multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes type-1 (MEN-1) and nesidioblastosis.

#431 Everolimus Controlled Resistant Hypoglycemia in Malignant Insulinoma
Introduction: A pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma with liver metastases was diagnosed on July 2006 in a 65-year-old man. He was treated with octreotide LAR 30 mg for three years. At liver progression he was enrolled in a multicenter Italian trial titled “XELBEVOCT” with Bevacizumab + Metronomic Capecitabine + Octreotide LAR 30 mg. After seven months, the patient exhibited severe hypoglycemic syndrome with HGT serum levels<30 mg/dl, insulin 150 microUI/ml, and C-peptide at upper normal limits. Endocrinologist prescribed prednisone, diazoxide and recombinant glucagon for hypoglicemic crisis, with little benefit. In March 2010, the patient was given radio-labelled Lu-177-OCTREOTATE treatment. After three cycles, hypoglicemic symptoms were still uncontrolled. CT scan showed stable disease.

#483 Efficacy of Everolimus in Patients with Metastatic Insulinomas and Refractory Hypoglycemia: For the French Group of Endocrine Tumors (GTE-Renaten)
Introduction: Refractory hypoglycemia in patients with metastatic insulinomas (RHMI) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality and Everolimus could be a new therapeutic option.

#547 Insulin Autoimmune Syndrome Mimicking Insulinoma: A Challenging Diagnosis
Introduction: Insulin autoimmune syndrome (IAS) is a rare condition characterized by hypoglycemia due to autoantibodies against endogenous insulin. It is correlated, in approximately 50% of cases, to specific drugs intake. Hypoglycemia occurs typically during the late post-prandial period.

#2249 Pasireotide as a Possible Tool for the Control of Refractory Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia from Malignant Insulinoma
Introduction: The control of hypoglycemic hyperinsulinemic syndrome from malignant insulinoma is challenging because it is often refractory to diazoxide and somatostatin analogues (SA). Everolimus can have side effects that can limit its use. Pasireotide, a multi-receptor-targeted SA with a high binding affinity to SSTR1 and SSTR5, exhibits a strong inhibitory effect of insulin secretion.

#339 Focal Nesidioblastosis in an Adult
Introduction: Nesidioblastosis is an uncommon cause of persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (PHH) in adults. Although it is well-described in infants, the pathophysiology in adults is poorly understood.

#699 Ethanol Ablation in an 81-Year-Old Patient with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (Islet Cell Tumor) and Severe Hypoglycemia – A Case Study.
Introduction: The key clinical problem in patients with islet cell tumors are persistent hypoglycemia episodes, which are particularly dangerous in the elderly since neuroglycopenia may be the cause of stroke.

#958 Hypoglycemic Syndrome Recurrence after Surgical Removal of a Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Adenoma
Introduction: A 56-year-old woman was submitted to caudal pancreatectomy for an insulin-secreting adenoma suspected by MRI and fast test positivity at 38th hour. Intraoperative US excluded other pancreatic lesions but tissue analysis described a 8mm neuroendocrine well-differentiated tumor and the surrounding pancreatic tissue exhibited characteristics of nesidioblastosis. Five months after surgery, she still reported episodes of hypoglycemia requiring diazoxide therapy and she was admitted to our department.
