Liver metastases 9 years after removal of a malignant insulinoma which was initially considered benign
Journal of the Pancreas
Insulinomas may be regarded as potentially malignant. A long follow-up period is needed to detect any possible recurrence, even if the initial diagnosis was of a benign insulinoma. We present the case of a 76-year-old woman with liver metastases due to a malignant insulinoma, which had been diagnosed as benign after its complete removal 9 years earlier. This case shows the difficulty of distinguishing between benign and malignant insulinomas when there is no initial evidence of metastases. Thispmid:16525209 fatcat:phyo6eykpvfhleqcvp3ykfct4q
