We experienced two newborn infants suffering from recurrent attacks of hypoglycemia, they were underwent a subtotal pancreatectomy for suspected islet cell dysmaturation syndrome. No tumor was found, but histology revealed islet cell hyperplasia and nesidioblastosis. After surgery one case who was treated with diazoxide, had persistent hypoglycemia but the other showed normal glucose value.
