Abstract

An 84-year-old man was admitted to our hospital. His blood glucose level was 20 mg/dL. Since laboratory tests showed high titers of insulin antibodies, insulin autoimmune syndrome (IAS) was diagnosed. In order to avoid hypoglycemia, steroids can be effective in the long-term management of IAS in elderly patients.
