Peripheral distal neuropathy associated with hypoglycemia secondary to insulinoma is quite rare. So far, less than 40 cases have been reported in literature. In this report, we describe a 50-year-old patient with insulinoma-polineuropathy and neuropsychiatric symptoms, interpreted as temporal lobe epilepsy, over the preceding 7 years. Due to the variability of the clinical presentation, diagnostic mistakes are frequent, and diagnosis of insulinoma is often delayed. Thus, the hypoglycemic nature of neuropathy can be lately recognized.
