Resumo

SOUTELO, Jimena et al. Hypoglycemia induced by a solitary fibrous tumor of the lung or Doege-Potter syndrome: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2016, vol.144, n.1, pp.129-133. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872016000100017.

We report the case of a 75-year-old man who was admitted to the hospital with symptoms of severe hypoglycemia. He had a history of solitary fibrous tumor diagnosed by Pathology after its complete surgical resection eight years before. The laboratory examination reported hypoglycemia with inhibited Insulin secretion. A computed tomography of the thorax revealed a large solid heterogeneous mass in the left hemithorax. Solitary fibrous tumor is a rare neoplasm. The association of solitary fibrous tumor and paraneoplastic hypoglycemia is known as Doege-Potter syndrome and occurs in less than 5% of all solitary fibrous tumors.

Palavras-chave : Hypoglycemia; solitary fibrous tumor; non islet cell tumor hypoglycemia (NICTH).
