Abstract

Non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia (NICTH) is a rare but severe complication of malignancy. We present the case of 55 year old man who was admitted for severe hypoglycemia. The diagnosis of insulinoma was ruled out. After clinical work-ups, we made the diagnosis of metastatic HCC with production of IGF-2.
