GRANELA CORTINAS, Kesia et al. Nesidioblastosis: persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia in the childhood. MEDISAN [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.1, pp.127-133. ISSN 1029-3019.

Two case reports of female newborns are presented who, among other symptoms, presented with low concentrations of maintained glucemia (lower than 2,2 mmol/L), so they were evaluated in the Endocrinology Service of "Eduardo Agramonte Piña" Teaching Pediatric Provincial Hospital in Camagüey, where they were diagnosed nesidioblastosis -- persistent neonatal hypoglycemia --. In one of the patients the medical treatment was favorable, but in the other it was necessary to carry out a subtotal pancreatectomy. At present both patients receive therapeutic schedules adjusted to their clinical needs

Keywords : nesidioblastosis; persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia; subtotal pancreatectomy; pediatric hospitals.
