ABSTRACT: Early diagnosis and surgery should promptly be instituted to prevent neurological sequelae of hypoglycemia in nesidioblastosis. We report a case of diffuse of nesidioblastosis in a 5-1/2 year boy who presented with hypoglycemic coma preceded by early morning convulsions. During this 3 year follow up after a near total pancreatectomy the boy showed no clinical or biochemical evidence of hypoglycemia.
