AbstractAbstract PDF
Insulinoma is insulin-secreting tumor that almost all originate in the pancreas and cause symptoms related to hypoglycemia. The documentation of metastatic lesions by imaging studies, is only accurate mean of diagnosing malignant insulinoma before surgical exploration. We experienced a case of malignant insulinoma with liver, adrenal glands, regional lymph nodes and multiple bone metastasis. Abdominal ultrasonography, computed tomography and liver, bone scanning were used to evaluate the disease. Tissue diagnosis was obtained by percutaneous needle biopsy of liver metastasis. The patient was treated with Octreotide therapy and combination chemotherapy(Streptozocin and 5-FU), but she did not respond to these regimen. Now, we present this case with the brief review of literatures.
