Congenital hyperinsulinism, nesidioblastosis is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in infancy which is caused by increased insulin secretion despite of low blood glycose levels. The most important complication is cerebral damage as a result of prolonged hypoglycemia. Type 2 of the disease is caused by KCNJ11 mutations.
