Question from Saltillo, Coahuila, M�xico:
I want to know if there is possible the diagnosis of nesidioblastosis in adult female with hypoglycemia. Growth hormone, cortisol and insulin blood levels are normal. The determination of C-peptide is in process.
Nesidioblastosis is a disorder of infancy although it has been reported as an extreme rarity in adults. Hyperinsulinism at that age is usually due to a benign adenoma [insulin-secreting tumor of the pancreas; also called an insulinoma]. In any case both these conditions, assuming no laboratory error, are excluded by the normal serum insulin levels.
