Hypoglycaemia in newborns is usually a transient metabolic event. Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia is an important cause of nonketotic hypoglycaemia and it is characterized by macrosomia and hypoglycaemia with potential short and long term complications, if not properly managed with available medical and surgical options. We are presenting a neonate with this condition, who was managed in our unit and who underwent pancreactomy to control hypoglycaemia.
