Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare hereditary condition that causes excessive insulin production in the clinical picture of severe hypoglycemia. Patients with CHI frequently have mutations in the ABCC8 and KCNJ11 genes, which code for KATP channels in pancreatic beta cells. We present a case of partial diazoxide responsiveness caused by a heterozygous ABCC8 mutation in a child with moderate CHI. A four-month-old term baby with a ...
