Hepatic Solitary Fibrous Tumor Presenting as Severe Hypoglycaemia: A Case-Report
ABSTRACT
We report a case of a patient presenting with profound insulin-independent hypoglycaemia. A large hepatic leasion was identified and surgically resected. Histology confirmed a 17.5 cm hepatic solitary fibrous tumour. The clinical and biochemical presentation is consistent with IGF-II mediated hypoglycaemia.
