We report a patient with recurrent episodes of hemiplegia caused by hypoglycemia. Investigations revealed an insulinoma, which was surgically removed. After this, the blood glucose level normalized and the patient remained asymptomatic for 9 months. We discuss pathophysiological mechanisms whereby hypoglycemia might cause focal neurological deficit.
