Congenital hyperinsulinism is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycaemia in infancy, with neonatal onset having the worst neurological prognosis. This case describes a compound homozygous KATP channel mutation that was managed conservatively without pancreatectomy in a child with good neurological outcome.
