This is to correct the published article, Journal of Medical Cases, 2015;6(7):307-308. DOI: 10.14740/jmc2175w.

The diagnostic criterion for insulin in the third row of the second column of Table 1 was stated incorrectly as: > 3 pmol/L. The correct value should be: > 18 pmol/L. The word “Second” in the first row of the last column of Table 1 was misspelled. Therefore, the correct Table 1 is shown below.

Table 1.

Table 1. Results of Blood Tests During the Patient’s Hypoglycemic Episodes
 

As a consequence, the sentence appearing in the Discussion section of the article, which was originally published as:

“The combination of symptoms and signs of hypoglycemia with the biochemical criteria (plasma glucose below 3.0 mmol/L, proinsulin above 5.0 pmol/L, insulin above 3.0 pmol/L, and C-peptide above 0.2 nmol/L) all demonstrate endogenous hyperinsulinemia [3]” stated an incorrect value for the diagnostic criteria for insulin.

The correct sentence should be:

The combination of symptoms and signs of hypoglycemia with the biochemical criteria (plasma glucose below 3.0 mmol/L, proinsulin above 5.0 pmol/L, insulin above 18.0 pmol/L, and C-peptide above 0.2 nmol/L) all demonstrate endogenous hyperinsulinemia [3].

The authors apologize for this oversight. This has not affected the diagnosis or conclusions drawn from this case report.
