Autoimmune hypoglycemia is a rare but fascinating syndrome of hypoglycemia caused by the interaction of endogenous antibodies with insulin or the insulin receptor. Awareness of autoimmune hypoglycemia is important because the syndrome may produce severe neuroglycopenic symptoms and may be confused with the presence of an insulinoma. A correct diagnosis is important to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention in patients who are best treated with conservative support, watchful waiting, or in some cases, immunosuppressive therapy.
