Introduction: In acromegaly GH excess leads to impaired insulin sensitivity with an alteration of beta-cell function. The consequent hyperglycemia leads to a further increased cardiovascular risk and mortality.Case report: A 16 years old patient was first referred to the Department of Pediatrics in 2014 with accentuated growth since the age of 10.

Introduction: Insulinoma is a rare tumor of the beta cells of the pancreas. The clinical manifestation is diverse with hypoglycemia and autonomic neurological symptoms. For diagnosis the Whipple’s triad needs to be present: signs of hypoglycemia, glucose level under 3 mmol/l and the cessation of symptoms after administration of iv. glucose. The fasting test confirms the diagnosis. The most commonly used imaging techniques that may localize the tumor are the abdominal ult...

However, the localization of the lesion is necessary for proper treatment, in certain cases finding the insulinoma is difficult and can only ...
