Abstract

Neuroendocrine tumours of pancreas originating from pancreatic islet cells are uncommon neoplasms with clinical manifestation depending on a type of hormone secreted. Diabetes as a clinical sign of such a tumour has been reported many times and is not an uncommon finding but it is generally mild and makes only a part of a whole pattern of symptoms. We report on a case of a malignant neuroendocrine pancreatic tumour in 19 years old patient, where diabetes, with a clinical course typical for type 1 diabetes, was the first and the main symptom of the disease.
