Insulinomas have an incidence of approximately one in one million people. They account for 66 to 85 per cent of patients with endogenous hyperinsulinism. They usually have dimensions of 1 to 2 cm and 99 per cent of them occur within the mass of the pancreas; 5 to 10 per cent are malignant. Typical symptoms of hypoglycemia tend to occur in the late afternoon or some hours after a meal. Diagnosis requires demonstration of Whipple's triad: low serum glucose, spontaneous symptoms during documented hypoglycemia, and resolution of symptoms with glucose administration. Rare non-b-cell tumors can cause related syndromes. Most are mesenchymal, but occasional epithelial neoplasms such as hepatomas and adrenocortical and carcinoid tumors can cause hypoglycemia.
