Pancreatic insulinoma is the most common neuroendocrine tumor of pancreas expressing hormonal manifestation. While majority of insulinoma is benign, complete resection of tumor with enucleation already provided potential cure. Ff tumor is located at head of pancreas and close proximity to main pancreatic or common bile duct, enucleation often lead to pancreatic leakage and morbidity. However, major pancreatectomy including Whipple operation is also major undertaking. Endoscopic ultrasound guided alcohol injection with ablative effect offers an alternative for treatment of pancreatic insulinoma with low morbidity. In this report, we will share our experience and review the current literature on EUS-guided alcohol ablation for pancreatic fistula.
