Abstract

We describe the clinical cases of two male subjects, respectively 73 and 41 years old, affected with insulinoma, misdiagnosed for many years as psychiatric subjects and scarcely responsive to therapy with benzodiazepins, antidepressants and antiepileptics.

Once the surgical therapy was carried out, our subjects recovered totally and ended the psycho-drugs
