Abstract

Several drugs can be used to control hypoglycemia caused by insulin-secreting pancreatic tumors but none are reliably efficacious or free of side effects. We report the case of a woman with an insulinoma who refused surgical intervention and was successfully treated with the Ca2+-channel blocker verapamil.
