[Factitious hypoglycemia--Munchausen syndrome in diabetes mellitus].
Orv Hetil. 1995 Jan 01; 136(1):31-3.OH

Abstract

The medical history of a 43-year-old non-insulin-dependent diabetic patient is presented. The exact diagnosis of the cause of repetitive and severe hypoglycaemic episodes proved to be difficult. Finally, high serum insulin and low C-peptide values were found in peripheral venous blood during hypoglycaemia resulting in an elevated (> 1.0) molar ratio of insulin to C-peptide. The laboratory findings were assessed as consequences of surreptitious insulin administration. Factitious hypoglycaemia could be considered as a clinical manifestation of Munchhausen syndrome. Confronting the patient with evidences of surreptitious insulin injections, hypoglycaemic episodes abruptly discontinued to occur.
