Abstract

An adenoma of the islets of Langerhans may be found anywhere in the pancreas but is more common in the body and tail, and more than one tumor may be present. When such a tumor produces insulin the symptoms observed are those of hyperinsulinism, varying from pallor, sweating, weakness and amnesia in mild cases to coma and convulsions in the more severe.
