Furnica Raluca Maria , Janin Nicolas , Maiter Dominique

Background: Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an autosomal dominant inherited tumour syndrome with an important phenotypic variability. Genetic testing for VHL is simple and accurate.Objective: In this study, we investigated the relationships between genotype and phenotype in a series of patients with different VHL gene mutations.Method: This was a retrospective analysis of the clinical and molecular characteristics of 15 VHL pati...

Furnica Raluca Maria , Istasse Laure , Gigot Jean-Francois , Deprez Pierre , Buysschaert Martin , Maiter Dominique

Background: Insulinomas are the most common functional neuroendocrine tumours of the pancreas. Hypoglycaemic manifestations are highly variable and largely independent on tumour size and severity of insulin hypersecretion.Objectives: In this study we investigated the clinical, biological and tumoural characteristics of a large series of patients with insulinoma and we evaluated the sensitivity of peripheral tissues to insulin before and after surgery.</p...
