We report a case of severe hypoglycemia in a year old female initially admitted for resection of left sided solitary fibrous tumor of pleura. Investigation revealed true hypoglycemia, and DPS was diagnosed. The tumor was completely resected, after which no further hypoglycemic episodes were seen in 2 years follow-up. This is the first case of solitary fibrous tumor of pleura with DPS reported from Nepal.

Doege–Potter Syndrome, cause of nonislet cell tumor hypoglycemia: the first case report from Nepal
Metrics details. Doege-Potter syndrome is a paraneoplastic syndrome characterized by non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia secondary to a solitary fibrous tumor. This tumor causes hypoglycemia by the secretion of a prohormone form of insulin-like growth factor II. We describe the diagnosis and management of Doege-Potter syndrome and the use of transarterial chemoembolization in a patient with a malignant extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor. Our patient was a year-old Caucasian woman who initially presented with urinary incontinence and was found to have a
Metrics details. Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura SFTPs are relatively rare tumors that originate from mesenchymal cells of submesothelial tissue of the pleura. Most patients with SFTPs are asymptomatic; however, pleuritic chest pain, cough, and dyspnea can develop. If hypoglycemia is associated with a solitary fibrous tumor, it is referred to as the Doege-Potter syndrome. A year-old man had visited our hospital with a chief complaint of dyspnea, and he was diagnosed as having a solitary fibrous tumor.
Doege-Potter Syndrome: A Review of the Literature Including a New Case Report
Doege-Potter syndrome is a non-islet cell tumor hypoglycemia, secondary to a solitary fibrous tumor SFT. It is rare, and more associated with malignant SFTs.
