Blurred Vision and Palpitations in a Young Woman


A 26-year-old woman experiences occasional blurring of her vision and palpitations. Her symptoms often improve after drinking juice. She does not have a history of diabetes mellitus. One day, she presents to the ER after experiencing a seizure. The result of a head CT performed in the ED is negative. Her blood glucose is 30 mg/dL and she is given intravenous dextrose solution. During her work-up, an abdominal CT is performed which is notable for a mass in the head of the pancreas (Figure, see broken blue line).
