The patient was referred to our clinic with the prediagnosis of insulinoma
after they measured fingertip blood glucose 26 mg/dL in the emergency service when she applied with neuroglycopenic symptoms.
Other treatment options, including arterial chemo-embolization, radiofrequency ablation, radionuclide therapy, and liver transplantation, can be used for curative purposes when liver metastases are unresectable; the morbidity and mortality in patients with insulinoma
are predominantly the result of the persistent hypoglycemia rather than wide-spread dissemination of the tumor (7).

Kinoshita and Kusamori reported that pseudoislet formation minimally improved glucose-responsive insulin secretion using mouse insulinoma
MIN6 and NIT cells [25, 26].
From her family history and further investigation, she was diagnosed as having insulinoma
and hyperparathyroidism in MEN-1.
