In recent years our understanding of the changes in the endocrine pancreas in persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia in infancy, a form of congenital hypoglycemia, has increased considerably, in terms of both morphological classification and molecular pathogenesis. This review summarizes the current state of knowledge about the pathological lesions in the pancreas and their relationship to recently reported molecular findings.
