We report on a case of malignant insulinoma occurring in a patient with genuine insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). A review of cases concerning patients with diabetes mellitus and insulinomas is presented, and reveals only patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Our case appears to be the first in showing the combination of IDDM and a functioning malignant insulinoma.
