Insulin autoimmune syndrome is characterized by spontaneous hypoglycemia, elevated insulin level and a high level of insulin autoantibodies without previous insulin exposure. Among the clinical manifestations of insulin autoimmune syndrome, diabetic ketoacidosis is extremely rare. A 72-year-old diabetic woman was hospitalized with diabetic ketoacidosis. She suffered repeated fasting hypoglycemia after treatment of the diabetic ketoacidosis. Here we describe this case of insulin autoimmune syndrome manifested as diabetic ketoacidosis followed by recurrent hypoglycemia with a review of the relevant literature.
Key Words: Diabetic ketoacidosis, Hypoglycemia, Insulin autoantibody
