Abstract

The fourth reported case of hypoglycemia following removal of a pheochromocytoma is described. The interrelationships between alpha and beta-adrenergic activity and insulin release are reviewed. Preoperative alpha blockade without concomitant beta blockade may predispose to hypoglycemia following tumor removal.
