Diabetes mellitus and spontaneous hypoglycemia. A case report of extrainsular neoplasm

Rizzo M., Pintaudi C., Senatore F., Russo F.


PDF


The authors report a case of hypoglycemia in a subject with NIDDM and CAD. The clinical syndrome, which was diagnosed as an induced form for a long time, was found to be spontaneous and caused by metastasised kidney neoplasm. This led to considerable problems of differentiated diagnosis owing to the concomitance of diabetes and vascular pathology. An adequate assessment of the clinical findings and the instrumental and biohumoral tests would have enabled a more rapid diagnosis, thus allowing a correct therapeutic approach to be adopted.
