Focal Nesidioblastosis in an Adult Abstract #339

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.
Aim(s): From our review of the literature, we believe that this is the second reported case of localized nesidioblastosis in an adult.
Materials and methods: A 63-year-old woman presented with unexplained weakness and dizziness, which was relieved with food intake. On workup, she was found to be hypoglycemic, with serum glucose values between 32 and 50 mg/dL. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a nodule arising from the corpus of the pancreas, which was slightly enhanced, measuring 1.0 cm in diameter.

Introduction: SPECT/CT imaging with GLP1-R specific radiotracers like 111In-DOTA-exendin-4 have already proved to be a useful tool for the preoperative localisation of insulinomas. PET/CT has several advantages over SPECT/CT: lower radiation exposure, less time consumption and higher spatial resolution.

Introduction: Pathologic hyperplasia of pancreatic endocrine cells is uncommon. ß cell hyperplasia contributes to persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. The manifestations of patients with pancreatic ß cells hyperplasia are variable and their preop. diagnosis is difficult.

#1709 68Ga-NODAGA-exendin-4 PET/CT for the Localization of Insulinomas: Preliminary Data from a Prospective Multicenter Imaging Study.
Introduction: Insulinomas are usually small, single tumors. Precise preoperative localization of the tumor is essential. Imaging techniques like CT and MRI have limited sensitivity and also somatostatin receptor (SSTR) imaging is not specific. Exendin specifically binds the GLP-1 receptor (GLP-1R), which is markedly upregulated in insulinomas. 68Ga-DOTA-exendin-4 PET/CT has been shown to be feasible in detecting insulinomas. Replacing DOTA by NODAGA ensures higher specific activities. We propose 68Ga-NODAGA-exendin-4 PET/CT as a promising new method for improved localization of insulinomas.
