This image shows predominantly unremarkable pancreatic acinar tissue. Large and back to back islet celllike structures image are present, a finding that suggests focal nesidioblastosis.

Focal nesidioblastosis features confluent growth of endocrine cells image. The endocrine cells are very similar to those seen in normal pancreatic islets. Note the intervening normal acinar cells image.

  • Morphologic findings associated with functional disorders of β cells (hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia) in absence of insulinoma
