Insulinomas are the most common functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). They result from growth of islet cells that produce excess insulin. Insulinomas may be associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) or Wermer syndrome. Only 10% of insulinomas are malignant (National Cancer Institute [NCI], 2018).
