Diabetes mellitus 14 years after a subtotal pancreatectomy for neonatal hyperinsulinism

J Pediatr Surg. 1990 Dec;25(12):1246-7. doi: 10.1016/0022-3468(90)90519-f.


A 14-year-old girl developed diabetes mellitus 14 years after subtotal pancreatectomy for neonatal hyperinsulinism. Diabetes mellitus seemed to be due to pancreatectomy and not to the usual juvenile type 1. To the best of our knowledge, this type of complication had never been reported such a long time after a pancreatectomy.
